…By Dorcas Funmi for TDPel Media.
Former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, recently emphasized the importance of unity among Nigerians and expressed hope for a successful administration under President Bola Tinubu.
During a live media chat in Port Harcourt, Wike shared his views on the zoning policies of the current government.
Gratitude for Second Chance and Criticism of PDP:
Wike asserted that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) should be grateful for the opportunity to rectify past misdeeds committed against the Nigerian people.
He criticized the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for relying solely on numerical strength and failing to adhere to its zoning principle, which he believed resulted in their loss in the previous presidential election, granting the APC an uncontested victory.
Debunking Claims of a “Muslim Agenda”:
Addressing concerns regarding Tinubu’s choice of vice-president, Wike refuted allegations of a “Muslim agenda” and dismissed such claims as tactics employed by lazy politicians.
He referred to the criticisms faced by Tinubu and his deputy, Kashim Shettima, during the 2023 election campaign, but highlighted that they were declared winners despite the criticism surrounding their shared faith ticket.
Warning Against Criticism and the Need for Support:
Wike cautioned critics within the APC to avoid stifling the President’s administration and instead show support, emphasizing that the Nigerian people would ultimately benefit from a smooth governance.
He expressed concern that any crisis or hindrance to the President’s administration would ultimately impact the citizens and emphasized the importance of unity and inclusivity.
Former Governor Nyesom Wike called for unity and belief in the oneness of Nigerians while expressing hope for a successful administration under President Bola Tinubu.
He urged the ruling party to seize the opportunity to rectify past wrongs and encouraged critics to support the President’s administration for the benefit of all Nigerians.
