Nyesom Wike, the Governor of Rivers State, has slammed former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, among other members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for their position on a consensus candidate for the 2023 Presidential Elections.

Ayodele Fayose, the controversial ex-Governor of Ekiti State, recently verbally abused ex-President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and ex-Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Thursday arraigned one Ope Saraki, a Cousin of the immediate past President of the Nigerian Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki on two count charges bordering on contract scam to the tune of Two Hundred and Twenty Million Naira (N220, 000, 000).

The revocation order read: “In exercise of the powers conferred by Section 5 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) 1999 and Section 1 and 28 of the Land Use Act Cap. L.5 of 2004 and all other powers enabling me in that behalf, I, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Governor of Kwara State of Nigeria, give the following notice:

If we are talking of history and legacy, no one can contest that position with Obasanjo in Nigeria. God made him great. He made him military head of state by sheer providence. He made him transfer power peacefully to civilians, which amplified his personality. He then made him a two terms president. No living Nigerian can match that, except Buhari, but Buhari was not privileged to transfer power from military to civilians. He waited to be overthrown. That was a minus compared to Obasanjo.
