Reps’ leadership positions : Wike to join APC campaign train Monday
Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike said he will personally join the campaign train of Tajudeen Abbbas and Benjamin Kalu as Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the 10th House of Representatives respectively after handing over the affairs of his State on Monday.
Wike, who spoke when the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President-elect Bola Tinubu’s preferred candidates visited him in Port Harcourt, said the 13 members-elect from Rivers State with the exception of one, are with Abbas and Kalu 100 percent.
A statement from the Joint Task team secretariat quoted Wike as assuring that the 2015 scenario where members that went against their party emerged as leaders of the National Assembly would not repeat itself. “I want to say here that I am with you fully. You know I do my things in the open. When Chinda told me that you’re coming here, I said there was no need because I am with you fully. All our members are with you, except one, who is doing something else.

“2015 won’t repeat itself. Let me tell you, I’ll leave office on Monday, and once I leave, we’ll start the campaign fully. I urge all of you to support Abbas. Don’t support him in the day and do something else in the night. You should support him fully,” he said.
