The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers has distanced from the scheduled two- day visit of President-Elect, Bola Tinubu to the State.
The party said the visit was at the invitation of the state Governor, Nyesom Wike and not the party.
Tinubu, who was elected on the platform of APC is due to be in Rivers State on Wednesday and Thursday during which he is expected to commission a flyover and a court building constructed by Governor Wike’s administration.
Wike had already declared Wednesday as a public holiday, urging the people to come out in their large number to receive Tinubu.
But in a statement on Tuesday, the spokesperson of APC in Rivers, Darlington Nwauju, said the party has nothing to do with the visit.
According to him, Tinubu’s visit is private one the invitation of Governor Wike.
“We challenge the Governor being an outgoing governor (Mr Wike) to play less divisive politics and exercise restraint in planting seeds of discord amongst opposition political parties.
“We are aware that the governor has been working so hard to paint a false perception of the collapse of the APC structure in Rivers State even when he had in previous well-documented interviews vowed never to have anything to do with a “cancer party (APC),” Mr Nwauju said.
However, Nwauju claimed that Rivers APC was aware of Wike’s plot to prank our President-elect into believing his false narrative that there is no other opposition political party existing in Rivers State.
“Rivers people already know this is not the correct situation on the ground.”
