Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about some political news. The Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Chief Tony Okocha, recently spoke up about claims that President Bola Tinubu handed over the party’s structure to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike. Let’s find out what he had to say!
Okocha made it clear that Tinubu would not hand over the party’s structure to Wike. Why? Well, it’s because Wike is not even a member of the APC! He belongs to a different political party called the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Okocha also mentioned that Wike has not shown any interest in leaving the PDP. In fact, he has said many times that he has benefited a lot from the PDP and is not in a hurry to leave. So, it’s safe to say that Wike is sticking with his current party.
Okocha wanted to make sure everyone understood the situation. He said, “If Wike wishes to join another political party in the future, he will let Nigerians know. But for now, he is a strong member of the Peoples Democratic Party. So, anyone who thinks that the President is handing over the APC structure to a PDP member is missing the point.”
There you have it, middle schoolers! Okocha has clarified that Tinubu did not hand over the APC structure to Wike because Wike is not even a member of the APC. It’s important to get the facts straight and not jump to conclusions. Stay tuned for more interesting news!
