Again, Lamido slams Wike

Former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, has said the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, is over-rating himself.

In an interview on Channels TV on Tuesday night, he said Wike has no monopoly of control over Rivers State.

According to him, the Rivers State helmsman had only one vote and cannot tell the people of the state who to vote for, adding that Wike would soon become a “political dustbin”.

He added that the PDP was too important to be diminished by the Rivers State governor.

He said: “If there is any offence whatsoever, it’s the convention, not Atiku, that offended Wike. People are talking about reconciliation. With who? How? I don’t seem to get it. The party should move with its normal campaign and activities. People bragging should be removed. It’s the office, not the personality, that’s speaking.

“Wike is an individual and has one vote. Rivers people are PDP. Wike has the right to say or do whatever he likes. He wants to behave like the emperor. Rivers people are going to vote PDP in 2023.

“He can give order in his state, not in PDP. It appears people of Rivers State have been enslaved by him. There were 13 aspirants in PDP Rivers. It was Wike who imposed the candidate. He was bombastic. He will soon become political dustbin.”
