Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has said that National Assembly hopefuls should accept the choice of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and President-elect Bola Tinubu.

Respecting the APC and Tinubu’s choice, according to Wike, will lead to Nigeria’s progress.

He made the remark while stressing that no President can function at full capacity unless the National Assembly cooperates.

“During his campaign, he, Tinubu, promised to unite every Nigerian and bring competence,” Wike remarked to journalists in Abuja.

“It’s not going to be because you are members of APC or not, we want Nigerians with the capacity to help people deliver what will make Nigeria to be great.

“No President can do very well if he does not have that leadership that is not ready to cooperate with him. If you remember what happened in 2015, that affected the performance of the present administration.

“In the interest of Nigerians, let them respect the leadership of their party and the President-elect to move forward.”
