Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Thursday shared a story on how he tried to get President-elect, Bola Tinubu to leave the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2018.
He said they met late at night at Tinubu’s home in Lagos, but the offer was declined.
The governor revealed this at a state banquet in Port Harcourt.
Wike said, “I met him first in 2018 around 2 am in his house -Bourdillon. I was sent to go and talk to him, about how he can join us. I went to him, I said sir, I hear you can’t find your feet again in APC. Why not join us and let’s support one of these our candidates to win the 2019 election?
“He asked me. Who are these your candidates, I mentioned them. He said look, if it is these ones you have, I will support (Muhammadu) Buhari 200 times. He told me that. And I respected him.”
