May 29 inauguration: Support Tinubu – Wike, Makinde urge Nigerians


Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has urged Nigerians to rally round the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.


Wike said elections are over, hence the need to support Tinubu in ensuring good governance.


He made the appeal while addressing journalists after meeting with Tinubu at the Defence House in Abuja on Friday.


Wike was accompanied by his Oyo State counterpart, Seyi Makinde.


According to Wike: “Elections have come and gone, and the winners have emerged, therefore, it’s necessary for all Nigerians to rally round and give Tinubu the necessary support.


“Everybody is waiting for May 29 when Tinubu will be sworn-in and I’m confident he has what it takes to turn Nigeria around.”


On his part, Makinde also pledged to support Tinubu to achieve good governance.


“I came here to basically pay homage to the President-elect and to let him know that elections are over and this is governance.


“We will do our best to give him support for good governance,” Makinde said.


Wike and Makinde were part of the G-5 integrity group of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that worked against the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.


Both governors supported Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the last presidential election.

  1. When a snake is looking for a way to go, people say the snake fights too much. I do hope that Nigerians have seen the type of person Governor Wike is. Such a man should not be trusted. Wike is a seagull snitch. PDP may not have made a mistake. Even if he was to be given the PDP presidential ticket, he would also sell it to Tinubu. Yet he could not be found guilty of anti-party activity. Big guy may? Look nothing last forever.

  2. Wike my man the man of the year 2023. The nightmare of big fishes in nigeria
