Former Jugawa State governor, Sule Lamido, said if the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democracy Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike is the man to succeed him.
Lamido stated that while speaking with Vanguard on Wednesday, Wike has done well for the PDP and is fit to be Nigeria’s president after Atiku Abubakar.
“Wike is a huge treasure for the PDP and one of the best materials. If we win (in 2023), he is the natural heir to the throne because he has the quality, the aura, the charm, the charisma and the age. I have been saying this: PDP is a family. There was a primary election, and there were expectations, but some of them were not met. So, it is natural for one to react. I can understand that,” Lamido said.
The PDP chieftain described Wike as a “forceful” person who should be saved from his own anger.
He said; “Governor Wike is somebody who is very forceful, who has done so well as a governor of PDP in his own state and who has been very supportive of the PDP. But again, he was made by the PDP. He is somebody we must make sure we preserve, and we must rescue him from his own anger,”
