He was later appointed a member of the Governing Council of Ignatius Ajuru Universityof Education with others.
Governor Wike felt betrayed by Ndubuisi Nwankwo for defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to the All Progressive Congress(APC) thinking that the Supreme Court will nullify the April 11 governorship election in Rivers State as the Tribunal and Appeal Court had earlier the mandate nullified by the Apex Court.
However, Wike’s mandate was affirmed by the Supreme Court.
