APC cannot Steal Wike from PDP- Saraki

Nigeria’s former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has described the All Progressives Congress’ wooing of Nyesom Wike to join them as miscalculated.

Saraki who lost the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential primary, said this while addressing the masses at the Eid celebrations on Saturday in Kwara.

This is coming after three governors of the APC — Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, all visited Wike at his residence in Port Harcourt, where they reportedly had a closed door meeting.

“Wike is an important member of our party and I am very confident that in no distant time, we will sit down and address all the issues. There is no doubt about it that he has cause to feel the way he does, but there are better ways by which issue like this can be resolved,” Saraki said.

“The good thing is that we are all talking to one another. We are on top of the situation and PDP will reunite and forge ahead to win the next elections. I assure you that PDP will definitely resolve its family issue that it currently has.

“The fact that some APC governors went to see their colleague, trying to capitalise on what they think is an issue is a gross miscalculation. At the end of the day, their visit is going no where.

“The APC governors know that it is this kind of a crack they need to latch on. Fortunately, we are not going to give him to them because the election ahead is too important. The destinies of millions of Nigerians are too important and even bigger than any party or individual. I appreciate that, all our stakeholders appreciate that and Governor Wike himself appreciates that.”
