In another development, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has said he will remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and help rebuild the party despite his strained relationship with the party's presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

It was not clear if Wike is in support of this move considering his romance with the APC leaders at the national level, but Nwiyo promised to collapse the structure of the WSM to the APC since he has left the PDP.
