A former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzo Kalu, has assured members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike will soon join the ruling party.
Kalu, who is the current Chief Whip gave the assurance on Thursday while addressing journalists after Wike had led him on a project inspection around Port Harcourt, the State capital.
The senator inspected the Rumuokoro Flyover bridge, 2nd Artillery flyover bridge, Real Madrid football Academy and the Mother and Child Hospital in Rumuomasi.
While commending the governor, Kalu said that Wike is strongly needed in the APC.
Kalu said, “He [Wike] is a man needed by us in the APC, it is my belief that a messiah can come from anywhere.
“I urge the Governor to partner with the APC, I discussed with him all through the night to find a common ground with the APC, I believe that very soon it shall come to reality.
“So I urge Governor Wike to soft pedal on our party, humans can switch from one party to another which is human behavior in Africa.
“I appeal to him to partner with us so that the good people of Rivers can benefit more from the Federal Government of Nigeria.”
