APC Chiefain Reacts To Wike's Reported Meeting With Tinubu

A former Deputy Spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has reacted to the reported meeting between the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Recall that reports emerged on Wednesday revealing that Wike and Tinubu met in London, UK, to discuss issues relating to the 2023 presidential election.

A source revealed that Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his Ekiti State counterpart, Kayode Fayemi, were part of the meeting from the Tinubu camp, while Governors Samuel Ortom (Benue) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo) attended the discussion from the Wike camp.

Reacting to the report of the meeting between Wike and Tinubu, Nabena said politics is all about negotiation and the two politicians are allowed to have discussions.

The former APC deputy spokesman asserted that politics dwells largely on numbers, interests and negotiations devoid of emotion.

He maintained that what Wike was doing was not different from what Amaechi did when he left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with other members.

He said, “Politics is all about negotiation. Once the big people come in, some other people will take the back seat. You know what happened in Rivers State when the governor came in, people took the back seat. You cannot have a sitting governor and someone else will become a leader.

“It is the way Amaechi built his system. We are beginning to see the Wike’s side and have not seen much of Amaechi. Maybe he has a game plan we don’t know but everything will play out at the appropriate time.
