Sule Lamido, a former governor of Jigawa state, has attacked Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state as the PDP’s turmoil worsens ahead of the 2023 general election. In an interview with Channels Television, Lamido said that PDP “should forget about Wike” because he doesn’t control the Rivers electorate exclusively. He insisted that even if Wike considers himself to be the Emperor of Rivers state, that will not help the party win votes in that state.

“He hasn’t got it. Rivers people are also PDP in their own right. They were there in 1999 when he joined. They were there when he was council chairman.

“Therefore, because he’s a governor, he now thinks he is their emperor, it can’t work. There is a Wike in every part of Nigeria who is a governor.

Lamido said; “Wike is an individual, I don’t think because he is a governor there he has control and monopoly over the peoples of Rivers.

“Leave Wike alone. He has the right to do whatever he wants. He can give order to people in Rivers who are enslaved to him. But right now if you go to Rivers, they are contesting for the governorship seat there, it was Wike who imposed the current candidate and nobody questioned that.”
