The presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, was allegedly reported to have turned down some of the demands of the Rivers state governor, Nyeson Wike.

Source privy to the information revealed that Wike has demanded that Tinubu should force the governorship aspirants in Rivers, Oyo, Abia and Benue states to drop their ambitions for PDP candidates.

Tinubu, on the other hand, said he would not want to be deceptive, that he can only look at the case of Rivers state, but others look unrealistic and difficult to achieve.

The details of the meeting between the Rivers state governor, Nyeson Wike and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has been revealed thus:

After Wike table his demand to Tinubu, the presidential hopeful was said to have shown zero commitment to his demands, while explaining why he could not meet the demands. Sources privy to the details of the meeting said that Wike’s demands are unrealistic and he could not really bring them to the table.

What Wike demands from Tinubu
“Ensures if he wins the presidential election, which comes first, he will ensure he does not influence the outcome of the governorship and House of Assembly polls in Rivers, Benue, Oyo and Abia states, so that candidates in his camp and those of the other governors could win and maintain control of the states”, the source revealed Wike’s demands.

Wike also want Tinubu to assure them that his men would be allowed to win senate, house of representatives seats, and the governors contesting senatorial election. Such demands had no headway because the presidential and national assembly election would be conducted simultaneously.

“The APC candidate only said, yes, he could look into the demands for Rivers, but he cannot do same for Oyo, Benue and Abia that it would be very difficult and will not want to come across as deceptive,” the source added.

According to the source, Wike wanted Tinubu to force the APC candidates in Rivers, Oyo, Abia and particularly Benue, where the ruling party’s candidate is believed to be stronger to drop their ambitions.
