“We pulled together all efforts individually and collectively, yet we couldn’t secure 25 per cent of the total votes cast for the presidential candidate of our party during the 2015 presidential election.

“It was worse in 2019 when we all still worked together with a super minister, security apparatchik and malleable election personnel, we couldn’t produce the required 25 per cent for our presidential candidate.

“But in 2023, against all expectations, APC Rivers won and secured over 40 per cent of the total votes cast for the presidential candidate of our party.

“Of tremendous note is to put on record the role of governor Wike of Rivers state, a leading member of the G5 Governors (Integrity Group), who threw his heavy weight in political maestro and “maverism” in support of the APC candidate.”

“This, to say the least, was the game changer. Thank you, governor Wike, the political bulldozer” Okocha told Vanguard.
