Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Friday said he had ended his relationship with the All Progressives Congress (APC) after the 25 February presidential election.

He said this on Friday in Oyo State while appealing to the residents in the state to support the second-term ambition of the Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde.

The Rivers governor was in the state, under the invitation of Mr Makinde, to take part in the inauguration of the Oyo State 5,000,000-litre Aviation Fuel Dispensing Depot at the Ibadan Airport in the Alakia area of the state.

Messrs Wike and Makinde are members of the G5, a group of aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors who rebelled against the PDP and its presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar on the grounds that it was the turn of the south to produce President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor.

Mr Buhari is from Katsina State, north-west Nigeria.

“There’s no relationship with anybody again,” Mr Wike said in Oyo State, apparently referring to his brief endorsement and support for Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate in the just concluded election.

“The only relationship we have on 11 March is umbrella. Nothing like broom. Broom had ended Saturday, last week,” he added.

The way the APC won the election in Rivers appeared quite dramatic.
