Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is currently in Turkey for vacation, Naija News understands.
The 2023 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant revealed this via his official Twitter account on Tuesday. Sharing photos on the bird app, Wike noted that the vacation was much needed for him at the time. Naija News understands that Wike was spotted in the photos alongside his counterpart from Abia State, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu. “Finally enjoying a much-needed vacation in Turkey with my brother Governor Okezie Ikpeazu,” the PDP chieftain tweeted. Naija News reports that Wike’s trip to the Western Asian country is coming shortly after he was named among a 128-member campaign council by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the Osun State Governorship Election on July 16. The National Working Committee, NWC, on Monday, announced that the party approved the Bayelsa State Governor, Duoye Diri, as the Chairman. According to PDP’s National Organizing Secretary, Umar Bature, the council will be inaugurated on Wednesday at the party’s headquarters in Abuja. Recall that Wike lost the chance to be Atiku Abubakar’s running mate to the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, and has not visited the party’s headquarters. Over the past few days since Atiku decided to pick Okowa as his running mate, there have been speculations that the Rivers governor is plotting an exit from the PDP. It is yet to be unknown if the governor will attend the inauguration of the campaign council on Wednesday, 28, in Abuja.
