We are opened to all especially to political powerhouses like the Rivers State Governor. He is the Lion of the PDP and the last man standing in the opposition.

“Wike has a lot of structure, including all of those with him. They have been in government and because they have been in government, wherever they go, they go to these places with their structure and followers.

“We will be happy to welcome Wike and his followers towards a winning ticket, a winning alliance. He is a man of the people, who can ensure we win next year’s election.”
