The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has alleged that the national Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Oyegun cried when the Supreme Court affirmed him as governor. Wike claimed that Oyegun cried because the APC wanted to rule over the affairs of the state “by all means.” The governor made the claim while fielding questions from Channels Television. According to Wike, the APC national Chairman said the party had lost the most important state, following his emergence as governor.
He said, “If you put all the states together, for example, they will tell you that they want Rivers state. “So, you ask yourself; of course, you should know why they want Rivers state. They want it by all means. Oyegun, chairman of APC, cried when they lost at the Supreme Court. “He said, look, we have lost the most important state. Why did Oyegun cry? Why did he say that, look, we have lost everything. Why would the national chairman of a party make such a statement?”
