Former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has stated that God has given the All Progressives Congress (APC) a second chance to rule Nigeria again.
He said the ruling party now has the chance to redeem themselves of what he described as their past misdeeds against Nigerians.
Wike, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made this known in a live media chat on Tuesday in Port Harcourt.
The former governor faulted his party’s reliance “on the numbers” and for failing to follow its zoning principle which he said cost them the February 25 presidential election and gave the APC the chance to emerge victorious.
“APC should be jubilating that God has given them an opportunity at the cost of PDP. God gave APC the opportunity to repent from the sins they committed against Nigerians,” Wike said.
Sounding a note of warning to critics in the APC to show support for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and not stifle his administration.
“God gave them this opportunity now and they want to bungle it again by bringing in crisis,” he said.
“If Mr. President doesn’t have a smooth administration, at the end of the day, who suffers? Is it not Nigerians? Let us believe that we are all one, let us give everyone a sense of belonging.”
