In the midst of speculations surrounding the inclusion of Nyesom Wike, the immediate past governor of Rivers State, in President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial list, Tony Okocha, the Coordinator of Bola Ahmed Tinubu Vanguard (BAT-V) and an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Rivers State, has asserted that Wike’s name remains on the list.
Wike’s Name Confirmed in the Ministerial List
Tony Okocha reassures the supporters of former governor Nyesom Wike that there is no cause for alarm as Wike’s name is still included in President Tinubu’s soon-to-be-released ministerial list.
Addressing concerns over Wike’s alleged removal, Okocha categorically affirms the presence of the former governor’s name, putting an end to the uncertainties surrounding his inclusion.
Dismissing the Rumors and Misinformation
The speculations about Wike’s exclusion were fueled by reports that the Department of State Service (DSS) had removed his name from the ministerial list.
However, Okocha refutes these claims, denouncing them as fake news aimed at misleading the public.
He questions the source of the misinformation and criticizes the publication responsible for spreading it, noting that the same media outlet had previously circulated fake news about former President Muhammadu Buhari’s demise.
Challenging the Motives Behind the Rumors
Okocha raises pertinent questions regarding the intentions behind spreading such rumors.
He points out that those behind the false news likely never believed that Nyesom Wike would be considered for a ministerial appointment.
As such, resorting to deceptive tactics through fake news appears to be their strategy to undermine his potential nomination.
Okocha emphasizes that Wike has not been charged with any corruption-related offenses, further discrediting the rumors and labeling them as baseless lies.
In the face of widespread speculations, Tony Okocha, a chieftain of the APC in Rivers State, dispels the doubts surrounding Nyesom Wike’s inclusion in President Tinubu’s ministerial list.
Okocha unequivocally confirms that Wike’s name is indeed present on the list and urges Nigerians to disregard the false news.
As the controversy settles, the focus remains on the impending release of the ministerial list, with Wike’s name still a part of it, as asserted by Tony Okocha.
