A former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has predicted that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State will end up a liability after the expiration of his tenure in May next year, stressing that the Governor does not have monopoly and control over the political choices of the people of the State.
Penpushing reports that, Lamido made the declaration while featuring on a monitored television interview, while responding to the political face-off between Wike and Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former Governor who is one of Atiku’s key loyalists pointed out that, Wike is acting like an emperor, adding that only residents of Rivers State who considered themselves as slaves, that will follow his order.
Penpushing further reports that, the controversial governor is only angry with bombastic rants under delusion of River State being an oil-rich state, adding that people were still listening to him because of his position as Governor, and not based on his personality.
The former Governor, in addition emphasized that Wike will become a political destitute in eight months when his tenure as governor will expire, adding that residents of the state have always been with Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
“Right now, if you go to Rivers, there were 13 governorship aspirants for the governorship candidate in Rivers State, it was Wike who imposed the current candidate. The others are there complaining and screaming. I saw him on TV talking the other day, he was very bombastic. He was saying that he would not allow this and that. In the next eight months, he will become a political destitute like me,” he said.
“Wike is an individual. I don’t think because he is a governor, then he has the monopoly and control over Rivers. He does not have it. He is always speaking because he is a bluff. The people of Rivers State are in PDP in their own right’, Lamido stated.
“Because he is now a governor, he can appropriate sovereignty and become an emperor because he is a governor. It cannot work. There is a Wike in every part of the country. Leave Wike alone, he can give order to Rivers people if they are enslaved to him. If they are his slave— fair enough, he is their emperor, let him give orders.”
