Rivers, Port Harcourt - The Governor Nyesom Wike-led G-5 governors have been urged to back the presidential bid of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
This appeal was made by the members of the Rivers state chapter of the APC presidential campaign council ahead of next month's presidential polls.
During a press briefing with newsmen in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state APC PCC said there is a need for the G-5 governors to throw in their weight behind the presidential bid of Tinubu as it will help reflect and replicate the milestone the APC chieftain achieved in Lagos state.

The council questioned the loyalty of Cole to the presidential campaign of Tinubu in the state.
A member of the APC PCC, Chief Tony Okocha said there is a need for the Rivers state chapter of the APC to settle the ongoing disputes that have derailed the unity of the party with less than five weeks to the general elections.
As reported by Daily Independent, Okocha said;
“We request that the leadership of APC and PCC in Rivers State should vigorously campaign for Asiwaju Tinubu or leave the scene for those who are willingly ready to do so.
“The leadership of APC and PCC in Rivers State should not discriminate against those who are ready and willing to work for the Asiwaju/Shettima presidency whether they are full-fledged members of the party or not."
