Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has revealed why he wishes the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to continue to experience leadership crisis.
Speaking in an interview with Arise TV recently, Wike said the APC will continue to be in crisis so that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will continue to experience peace, unity, and growth.
“I want my party to be in power and, therefore, I cannot be praying for APC not to have crises. I hope they continue to make mistakes every day and my party (PDP) will continue to grow.”
Wike noted that he is really happy that Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state emerged the party’s candidate for the governorship election slated for September 19.
The governor, however, appealed to the party leadership to involve members in the decision making in order to avoid the APC’s current situation.
He said: “I am happy that APC is in crisis. It is not my business to help APC to be united.
“Remember we also had our own crisis under Ali Modu Sheriff and APC jubilated about it then. It is my prayer that they should continue to be in crisis.
“We have taken another state. Unfortunately, APC isn’t really a political party. They came together just to take over power.”
