Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State said that the All Progressive Congress’s (APC) Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has offered him a senatorial slot.
Wike also stated that other politicians from other party, including the Labour Party, are requesting for his support ahead the 2023 general elections.
Tinubu and Wike reportedly met in London last month amidst the political crisis storming the opposition party these days.
However, Wike did not accept the invitation by Tinubu to dump PDP and join the ruling party, APC.
Wike was qouted to have said, “When Tinubu offered me senate slot, I didn’t go for it. If I want power or want to be in power, I would have gone ahead to take the senatorial ticket. But I said no. That is a man who believes in equity, fairness, and justice.”
He added that, “Aside from Tinubu, who is from the APC, other political parties are talking to me as well including Labour Party because they all know my worth and how I can ensure that they win the 2023 poll.
“But I have not accepted any of the offers presented by those parties,” Wike stated.
