While it is obvious that Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor is against the Muslim-Muslim ticket in Nigeria and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s candidacy as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP flag bearer, the outspoken Governor has finally come out to utter these words to a congregation that he would never support any candidate who that said: “No other person from any ethnic group could be president.”

Nyesome Wike, the Governor of Rivers State, just became the favourite politician of musicians, footballers and others in the entertainment and business sectors.

Talks that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, considered the possibility of swapping the running mate of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, that is Governor of Delta State with the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, just before the timetable of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that gives political parties the grace to replace candidates before the 15th of July, 2022 expires.

It’s a shame politics in Nigeria is still perceived as war and few things or nothing is being done to keep the situation in a controllable state seeing that even up to date, Local Council Elections are not completely without violence.

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.

He said:” The Governor handed to us the keys of official cars that belong to members of the State Assembly. This is how it should be and we are very grateful to him for providing such leadership and ensuring that members’ walfare are always given priority.
