The governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, has tendered an apology to two top leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), David Umahi and Adams Oshiomhole.
Speaking in Port Harcourt on Saturday, December 3, at the Rivers state award where several notable Nigerians were honoured, Wike said he fought the two APC chieftains in the past.
He also noted that he was sure his actions against Umahi, the governor of Ebonyi state, did not give him the rest of mind he deserved.
"I fought Umahi to the last, this Umahi, he knows now. He never slept but I don't know how God is trying to help you.
