Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said he is happy with the current situation that has befallen the All Progressives Congress, APC and he prays his rival party continue to make mistakes and remain in crisis, so that Peoples Democratic Party, PDP will grow.
Wike in an interview with Arise television said, “I am happy that APC is in crisis. It is not my business to help APC to be united,” the governor said.
“Remember that 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.
“I want my party to be in power and therefore, I cannot be praying for APC not to have crisis. I hope they continue to make mistakes everyday and my party will continue to grow.”
He lauded Obaseki’s emergence as the standard bearer of the PDP for the Edo governorship election but advised that members of the party must be carried along on issues concerning the party.
The governor, however, stressed that everyone be carried along and also advocated unity to avoid the APC’s current situation.
He cautioned: “Carrying people along does not mean giving money. That is the mistake people make. It means listening to them, appealing to them and making them recognise the greater interest of the party.”
