‘Thankful for a fine evening’, says Wike after rumoured meeting with Tinubu in France

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, who lost the presidential ticket of the opposition party to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, has dropped a cryptic message on social media.

In a Facebook post on Thursday, Joe Igbokwe, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, claimed Wike met with the ruling party Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in France.

“While they are on social media abusing everybody, Governor Wike goes to France to meet Asiwaju. Abuse, calling names, hate, and bigotry are no strategy. They have hated and abused PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) since 2015 and now they have transferred the aggression to Asiwaju. We wait and see,” he wrote.

Some Social Media users had dismissed Igbokwe’s claim and demanded pictorial evidence. Moments after Igbokwe’s post went viral, it was no longer found on his page.

Hours after Igbokwe’s post was pulled down, Wike on his Twitter handle simply shared a picture of himself in Turkey with the caption, “Thankful for a fine evening.”

Daily Trust had reported how Tinubu departed for France after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday morning.

Some hours after Tinubu left the country, Wike released pictures where he was seen vacationing with his Abia counterpart, Okezie Ikpeazu, in Turkey.
