Sule Lamido the former governor of Jigawa state, has taken a swipe at Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state. Sule Lamido accused Nyesom Wike of monopolizing Rivers state and thinking he’s the Emperor of the state. This is coming after a video of Nduka Obaigbena teasing Wike in a recent event went viral

Lamido made these claims while speaking in an interview with Channels Television, he maintained that PDP “should forget about Wike” because he doesn’t have a monopoly over the Rivers electorate. He also stressed that Wike going out of PDP won’t cost the PDP votes in Rivers state in the coming elections, as he claimed that Wike thinks he’s the Emperor of Rivers state, but that won’t work. 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.
“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.

“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.”
Its worth noting that ever Atiku Abubakar chose Gov Okowa of Delta state to be his running mate ahead of the 2023 general election, with reports that Wike was the most voted, the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party’s has continued to deepen ahead of the 2023 general election.
