Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged the recently sacked commissioners in the administration of Governor Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike, to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and join its fold.
Secretary, Media and Publicity Committee of the APC in the state, Godstime Orlukwu, who made appeal in Port Harcourt, assured the former commissioners that the leadership of the party was ready to take care of them.
Orlukwu told Leadership newspaper: “It is likely going to happen; I see the sacked commissioners in the administration of Governor Nyesom Wike joining the APC. Wike is a smart guy; what actually happened was that more than 80% of members of his cabinet were about to resign before the cabinet dissolution.
“Those men were ready to quit. It wasn’t really like he dissolved the cabinet because of disloyalty. They wanted to go; they were all resigning in bits. The former commissioner for Works was not comfortable with what was happening but Wike was smarter than him and announced his sack.
“The commissioner for Information beat him to it. There were many others who were preparing to tender their resignation before Governor Nyesom Wike dissolved the cabinet.
“We will advise them, those who he did not reappoint do not have any problem. Definitely, they will pitch tent with the APC and the party will take good care of them.”
