Nyesom Wike, Meets APC National Chairman Abdullahi Ganduje

Abuja, Nigeria – In a development sparking speculation about political affiliations, former Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State made a visit to the private residence of former Kano State Governor and current National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, on Tuesday.

The timing of Wike’s visit has led to conjecture regarding his potential switch from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling APC.

Notably, sources indicate that Wike’s visit served as a congratulatory gesture to Ganduje on his recent ascent to the position of APC National Chairman.

This meeting follows closely on the heels of Wike’s visit to President Bola Tinubu at the State House in Abuja, just a week prior to his meeting with Ganduje. This comes as Wike, a ministerial nominee recommended by President Tinubu, continues to make political maneuvers.

Wike’s previous role, leading a coalition of four PDP governors who campaigned against the presidential candidacy of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 general elections, underscored his influence. The outcome of the elections saw victory for the APC.

It is worth noting that Wike has denied any intentions to defect from the PDP to the APC on several occasions, despite these intriguing political engagements. As the political landscape evolves, observers keenly anticipate any potential shifts in Wike’s political allegiance.
