Wike did all he could to win Rivers re-run to remain Governor – Okorocha
The Imo State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha, has stated that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State was desperate for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to win the just concluded re-run elections in Rivers because he (Wike) wants to remain Governor.
Speaking with newsmen in Owerri yesterday, Okorocha stated that his Rivers counterpart did all he could to secure his office by making sure that the PDP won majority of the senatorial, House of Representatives and House of Assembly seats in the state.
“If the governor did not do that to make sure he has majority of state and National Assembly members, he would have gone,” the Progressives Governors Forum chair stated.
This was as he noted that it is not an easy thing to defeat an incumbent governor in an election because he would do all he could to remain in power.
Speaking on the just concluded governorship elections which went in favour of the APC, Okorocha maintained that it is a testimony that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government was doing well.
He went on to assert that the APC would take over the governorship in Anambra State in 2017, adding that “Anambra State needs APC governor to succeed.”
