Rivers APC denies wooing Wike to join, says he's not welcomed

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State says it at no time patronised former governor 
Nyesom Wike to join the party, describing those credited with inviting Wike to takeover APC Rivers as imposters. 

Spokesman for Rivers APC, Darlington Nwauju, in a statement, distancing the party's leadership from the said invitation to the immediate past governor, said Rivers APC never and couldn't have invited Wike who characterised  APC as suffering from cancer to join the party. 

He said, "We unequivocally dismiss any such rumour or sponsored story that Rivers APC had at any forum invited Wike to join our party none the least calling on Wike to take over leadership of a party he never campaigned for. We dare anyone to provide evidence of any campaigns where Wike openly campaigned for the APC. 

"The terror unleashed on our party members in cause of his eight years maximum rulership alone is enough evidence to confirm that Wike has no business with Rivers APC. Asking him to come and take over is asking an enemy to come and finish off his victims. 

"We are aware of his schemes to escape justice over looting of the collective patrimony of Rivers people which is the major reason for his romancing top APC members. For those suffering from amnesia, a none APC member cannot be cheerleader for the entry of Wike into APC. 

"Nobody can decree his membership of a political party through radio or newspaper publications. All vexatious attempts at distracting our party in Rivers State will keep failing. 

"APC Rivers has a legally recognized state office where all official businesses are conducted. We have standard procedure for convening our meetings according to our party's constitution. A village meetings or gatherings cannot equate a stakeholder's meeting of APC in Rivers. 

"We therefore disassociate the leadership of our party from any so-called stakeholders meeting suggesting that our party be handed over to Mr Wike. 

"We warn blackmailers to desist from the shameless tradition of using the name of our party to curry favour from desperate politicians seeking relevance at the centre."
