Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, has described comments recently made about his the former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido as appalling, adding that Lamido is a paper-weight when it comes to politics in the country.
Lamido recently described a reconciliation committee set up to resolve the differences between the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Wike as mere well-wishers.
Wike lost the presidential primary election of the party to former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, who emerged as the presidential candidate of the party for the 2023 election. The crisis in the PDP deepened after Atiku shunned the governor and picked the Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate.
Lamido during an interview on Tuesday said the party had not set up any committee because the party did not offend anyone. He said the governor is trying to claim for himself the power of an “Emperor”, adding that he has no monopoly or control over the people of Rivers state because of his position as the governor of the state.
