Wike & Tinubu Struck A Deal That The Presidency Should Be Given To APC In Rivers State- Tonye Cole

The incumbent governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, and the incoming president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, reportedly struck an agreement to ensure that the governing APC party wins the state's presidential election in 2023, according to Tonye Cole, an APC candidate for governor. He revealed this knowledge in a conversation.

The businessman who brought up the issue recently stated in an interview with Arise TV that he was prepared to work with President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and abandon the election lawsuit he had filed against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State and Governor Nyesom Wike.

When talking about Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the governor of Rivers State, Tonye Cole disclosed the following:

It's no secret that Wike and the president-elect reached a deal under which Wike promised to cede the presidency to the APC in return for the APC president-elect giving Wike the freedom to take whatever steps are required to elect the PDP's candidate for governor.

The basic issue with the deal, even if it were to be approved, was that Rivers State politics would prevent it from operating as smoothly as Governor Wike had hoped.

He had to employ a range of strategies, including intimidation, violence, threats, bribes, assassinations, and others, to ensure that the election was rigged. After doing that, my President-elect won't be able to endorse any of those things because, in truth, those were the only ways the PDP could have won the election in the state using unethical tactics, and that's what we're depending on.
