The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has commended the tenacity and courage of Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike in the just concluded Presidential Primaries.

Nyesom Wike had scored a brilliant 237 votes to put all the other contestants for back while he trailed the eventual winner, Alh Atiku Abubakar who polled 371 votes.

He said, “Even though I am a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, I must say that I’m proud of Governor Nyesom Wike’s performance, tenacity and courage.

“Yes, he lost, but he fought gallantly. I congratulate and commend his doggedness at the just concluded PDP presidential primaries.

“I can only say that Wike is the winner of the game for defiling all odds to come second.

‘Take a bow, Nyesom Wike!”
