Former governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has dismissed rumours that he is planning to join the All Progressives Congress after meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Friday.
The Niger Delta-born politician along with Seyi Makinde and James Ibori, met with Tinubu to offer him support, four days after he was sworn in as the president of Nigeria.
Wike, a chieftain of the PDP, brushed off rumours that he was planning to join the APC and denied that switching to the APC was on the agenda of the meeting.
When asked by State House correspondents if switching to the APC was on the agenda of the meeting he had, Wike replied: “No. No plans. Nothing like that in the offing.
“We are Nigerians and we have come to give the president support.
“That is what is required. There is no big deal about that.”
