It would be recalled that Wike had earlier declared Wednesday, 2nd May 2023 as a public holiday due to Tinubu's visit to the State for commissioning of some infrastructural projects.

He made this known during a programme on ARISE TV while stressing that Wike ought to had carry the party along.

He said: " As President Elect of Nigeria, he has the right to go anywhere; we have no problem with that at all. Where the issue is that Wike ought also to be the governor of all Rivers people. One of the things that he should have done was to call us as APC in Rivers State to inform us that he was inviting the President Elect and would want us to be part of that programme. We never got any invitation, I was not invited in my private capacity as a candidate of the party, neither was APC in the State invited. That is where our disagreement stands".
