Wike visits Ganduje in Abuja, congratulates him on becoming APC chair

Nyesom Wike, the immediate former governor of Rivers state, on Tuesday, visited Abdullahi Ganduje, the new national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Wike, now a minister-designate, was received by Ganduje at his residence in the federal capital territory (FCT), Abuja.

According to a post by the ruling party on X (formerly known as Twitter), the former governor’s visit to the APC national chairman was to congratulate him on his election to the position.

Wike is believed to have worked for the success of President Bola Tinubu during the presidential election in Rivers state.

“Former governor of Rivers state and a minister-designate, HE. Nyesom Wike, paid a congratulatory visit to the national chairman, HE. Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje at his residence in Abuja,” the ruling party posted.

About two weeks ago, Ganduje was elected as the party’s national chairman while Ajibola Basiru, former senate spokesperson, became the APC national secretary.

They were elected after the ouster of Abdullahi Adamu and Iyiola Omisore as chairman and secretary, respectively.
