Cole, APC Leaders Worked Against Tinubu In Rivers- Wike

Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has said that the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Tonye Cole and his supporters worked against their presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu but failed in their own elections.

The Governor said while Cole was working for the emergence of the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, he led the campaign for a southern Presidency that delivered bulk votes to Tinubu in Rivers.

Wike insisted that he owed nobody any apology for supporting the emergence of a Southern president.

Addressing Cole, he said: “How can people say that they rigged you? You said you made your presidential candidate to win. Your presidential candidate won but you don’t get one senate (seat). What kind of winning is that?
“They supported PDP candidate and they lost woefully. They didn’t get 25 per cent. We supported a southern president for equity, fairness and justice and we took the senate seats. We took 11 House of Reps out of 13. We prove to them we are responsible and we are in charge of the state”.
