Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the presidential election petition tribunal.
This comes as a shock as the controversial governor is in the camp of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) whose petition was dismissed.
Wike’s congratulatory message was contained in a statement issued by Simeon Nwakaudu, his media aide.
However, Wike urged Buhari to use his victory to work for all Nigerians, “irrespective of their political leanings.”
“Governor Wike called on the President to work towards the unity of the country, noting that the country is divided.”
