The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has described  the decision of Chief Nyesom Wike to stay away from the Government House in Port Harcourt for the next three months as a wise decision, describing it as an admission of imminent defeat at the Election Petition Tribunal.

“We fully support this decision by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, who was unjustly declared Governor-elect by the State INEC, which never hid its connivance with Rivers PDP. He does not

have the legitimate mandate of the good people of Rivers State to act as their Governor. The decision indicates his awareness that his days as governor are numbered and is in tandem with our counsel to him not to make any change either of the furniture or curtain in the Government House since

his days as governor are very limited,” Rivers APC said in a statement.

The party also advised the Governor to limit his appointments to few aides.
 “In the circumstances, we would like to ‎counsel Wike further to limit his appointments to few aides as making many appointments will tantamount to killing the political careers of such appointees,” the party said.
