In February 2024, the former governor bragged that he and members of his camp would be undefeatable in the 2027 election because of the alliance between the PDP and APC in the state.

Wike made this assertion after strong men in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), including a former national chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, declared full support for Tinubu.

In addition, the minister seems to be losing ground in Rivers as Governor Siminalayi Fubara is now getting more support from the PDP bigwigs.
