Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has criticized the choice of another Northerner to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in the midst of his disagreement with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar.
Another Northerner becoming the nation’s leader after President Muhammadu Buhari, according to Wike, is an insult.
He asserted that those pushing for narratives are hurting Nigerians’ sensibilities and do not advance national unity.
According to a statement by his media assistant, Kelvin Ebiri, Wike gave a sermon on Sunday at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
Wike asserts: “You play on people’s intelligence; you say Nigeria is not ready for a Muslim-Muslim ticket, and I agree. But Nigeria is ready for a one-zone presidency? Just take a look at the insult, for example. You blow both hot and cold.
By producing Buhari’s successor in 2023, the governor claimed the North would defraud other regions.
Most of you just sit there; you don’t question yourselves. These types of subpar concepts are still being sold by someone. I concur with what you say, but take a look at what we are saying here. You don’t ask the person.
Your party wants President Muhammadu Buhari to come from the same region as the president. Who’s defrauding who?
