The Chief Whip of the Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, has claimed Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, will soon join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He stated this while addressing journalists, after Wike had led him on a project inspection around Port Harcourt on Thursday.
Kalu, who commended Wike for his investments in critical infrastructure, called on him to work harmoniously with the APC.
“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,” he said.
