The governor was part of the welcoming party for President Buhari when he returned to the country after 103 days.
The state chairman of the party, Felix Obuah in a statement, signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam, described the exemplary gesture of Governor Wike as a display of the spirit of sportsmanship that should be imbibed by all politicians.
Governor Wike's consistent goodwill and prayers for the quick recovery of the President while he was away, he noted, have never been in doubt and will continue to showcase his love for others and his nature as a detribalised leader.
Obuah said by setting political differences apart and teaming up with all other concerned Nigerians to welcome Mr. President back home, Governor Wike has shown his peers that leadership goes beyond party politics and political affiliations.
Obuah also thanked Wike for not only preaching one united indivisible Nigeria, but also demonstrating non-partisanship in issues of national interest.
Obuah hoped that the president's resumption to work will put the wheel of democratic governance in the country back on track.
President Buhari resumed his official duties on Monday, August 21, after making his return to the country on Saturday, 103 days after he left for London to resume treatment for an undisclosed illness.
