POLITICAL NOTES: Of Atiku Abubakar and Nyesom Wike’s political grandstanding

Wike’s journey to stardom at other’s expense

 By Daniel Bwala

(Nyesom) Wike, allegedly, has never been faithful or loyal to anyone who helped him: Rotimi Amaechi, Patience Jonathan, and Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

In fact, he deceived Peter Obi that he would support him, deceived Baba Obasanjo in London that he would support Peter Obi, deceived some members of his Gra Gra 5 that he would support Obi, and lied to Nigerians that APC is a cancer and he would never support an APC government.

While doing all this, he was secretly negotiating his selfish ambition. He is more disloyal to the PDP than anyone he accuses. His weapon is Benjamin Franklin’s. Imagine a society based on Wike’s imagination and wishes. Banana republic

Check it out: every rise to fame has always been at the expense of those who helped him. Unfortunately for him, now he has found himself under a politician who knows every side of the political coin.

In his small mind, he thinks that while pretending to be loyal to Tinubu, he will scatter the PDP and take control of the party in order to advance his presidential ambitions against PBAT. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu must be smiling like a mouse that was served a cookie and a glass of milk without asking for them.

…Atiku’s false hope and humiliation

By Okor Efombruh

Let’s be honest: Atiku Abubakar had the perfect opportunity to win the last presidential election but became too overconfident and perhaps emotional. His first mistake was his choice of a running mate who had no significant electoral value, except maybe financial contributions.

The second mistake was choosing Ayu, who couldn’t even win his ward, over five governors of his party, including Wike, who had firm control over the entire Rivers State and a significant level of influence over Cross River State.

It appears Atiku had vengeful sycophants around him who deliberately thwarted every genuine effort to broker peace with the G-5. No one can deny that Wike wanted to settle with Atiku to the extent that he became a permanent resident at Channels TV. Wike initially believed the PDP might win and was confused at some point.

All the TV interviews were just to get Atiku’s attention, but sadly, he was disgracefully ignored. He would have succumbed but for the shame of being called a coward.

The All Progressive Congress (APC) saw the opportunity and took it. Of course, it paid off. So let’s move on.
