The Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday has reacted to his inclusion in APC Campaign Council for Bayelsa governorship election.
The former Rivers state governor clarified that he is working for President Bola Tinubu and not the All Progressives Congress.
Wike stated this while speaking on Channels TV Politics Today on Wednesday
He said: “I am not working for APC. I am working for Tinubu who have trust in me to help him deliver the renewed hope.”
He added, “I owe nobody any apology at all. I was in PDP and I worked for Ahmed Bola Tinubu to become the President of Nigeria.”
Controversy surrounded Wike’s reported APC membership after his name featured in the ruling party’s campaign council for the governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi states on November 11.
This followed the denial, on Tuesday night, by the party of releasing the controversial documents containing notable names of chairmen, co-chairmen and members of the campaign councils for the governorship elections that went viral in the media and online platforms.
The denial was contained in a statement issued in Abuja by the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka.
