2023: Oshiomhole recommends Wike, makes revelation on APC, PDP govs' deal
A former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said that he prays that more people like Governor Nyesom Wike are elected into power.
This was Oshiomhole's prayer on Wednesday, November 16, during the inauguration of a flyover in Rivers state.
As Oshiomhole put it, leaders like Wike fight to the last for their conviction.
“It is my hope and prayers that more people like you (Wike) will come into governance because a country cannot be led by people who can’t sustain a fight in what they believe in."

Oshiomhole went ahead to speak on how some Nigerian governors across party lines agreed in a meeting held in Asaba, Delta state capital, that a southerner should emerge as the next president.
