Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is asking Nigerians to rally around President-elect Bola Tinubu, saying the time for politics is over.
Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) to clinch the seat in the hotly-contested February poll.
Although Wike belongs to the PDP (did not support the party’s candidate), the Rivers leader is asking Nigerians to back the incoming administration which is set to be sworn in on May 29th, 2023.
He told journalists after meeting with Tinubu at the Defence House in Abuja on Friday that the time for politics is over and as such the incoming president needs the support of Nigerians.
Wike was accompanied by Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State.
