PDP Crisis: Wike Has No Monopoly Over Rivers State, He Now Thinks He Is Their Emperor - Sule Lamido

Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 24th Aug, 2022 - tori.ng

Insisting that Wike won't cost the party votes in Rivers state, he stated that while Wike thinks he's the Emperor of Rivers state, that won't work.

 
The crisis within the Peoples Democratic Party might deepen ahead of the 2023 general election after a former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido took a swipe at Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state. 
 
In a recent interview on Channels Television, Lamido stated that PDP "should forget about Wike” because he doesn't have a monopoly over the Rivers electorate.
 
Insisting that Wike won't cost the party votes in Rivers state, he stated that while Wike thinks he's the Emperor of Rivers state, that won't work. 
 
Lamido said; 
 
“Wike is an individual, I don’t think because he is a governor there he has control and monopoly over the peoples of Rivers.

“He hasn’t got it. Rivers people are also PDP in their own right. They were there in 1999 when he joined. They were there when he was council chairman.

“Therefore, because he’s a governor, he now thinks he is their emperor, it can’t work. There is a Wike in every part of Nigeria who is a governor.

“Leave Wike alone. He has the right to do whatever he wants. He can give order to people in Rivers who are enslaved to him. But right now if you go to Rivers, they are contesting for the governorship seat there, it was Wike who imposed the current candidate and nobody questioned that.”
