Reno Omokri, an aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is too big to be running mate to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
The human rights activist said Wike should be Nigeria’s next President after Atiku’s tenure.
He stated this while featuring on Arise Television’s morning show on Monday.
Omokri insisted there was no crisis in the main opposition party, and Wike has no plan to dump the main opposition party.
“Governor Wike has told us in private and in also public that he’s never going to leave the party,” he said.
“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has called Governor Nyesom Wike our Jagaban and it’s true because the man has almost a larger-than-life image
“Governor Wike is even too big to become Vice president. I see him as somebody who would be President after Atiku Abubakar.
“This is man who has Charisma, who has the carriage and would unify Nigeria. And as such a person, he understands the larger issues.”
