Why I Rejected Tinubu’s Senatorial Ticket Offer – Wike Reveals

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has revealed that he was wooed to join the All Progressive Congress by its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Wike said on Friday September 23, that he was offered a senatorial ticket by Tinubu which he rejected even after Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, failed to fulfill his promise after winning the party’s primary election.

He stated that he didn’t contest the primary to settle for a vice-presidential or senatorial ticket and will remain in PDP.

Wike said; “I didn’t contest so I can become a vice presidential candidate, I am not like others who were not serious and bought senatorial form alongside presidential form and that’s why when Tinubu offered me senate slot, I didn’t go for it.’’

This is coming months after some governors elected under the platform of APC met with Wike in Port Harcourt, Rivers State’s capital ahead of the 2023 elections.
