Port Harcourt, Rivers - Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River and his Ebonyi counterpart, David Umahi, met with Nyesom Wike (Rivers) on Wednesday, October 26.

Needless to say, while Ayade and Umahi are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Wike is a staunch and very influential chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
