Nwauju stressed that Wike, a man who had not been a member of the party and did not support the party’s interest, could not be promoted to lead them also.

The party spokesperson said:

“We dare anyone to provide video evidence of any campaigns where Wike openly campaigned for the APC. The terror unleashed on our party members in the cause of his eight years of maximum rulership alone is enough evidence to confirm that Wike has no business with Rivers State APC."

Nwauju further dissociated the leadership of the party from the purported call by one of its chieftains, asking Wike to lead the state APC. He also expressed the party’s untiring support to the President Bola Tinubu-led government.
