Senator Shehu Sani compared the connection between Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, and Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, to a man who is trying to be nice to a woman he dumped in order to maintain a good relationship with her.
On March 11, he posted this viewpoint to his Twitter account.
Recall that during the 2023 presidential race, some Nigerians and LP supporters believed that governor Wike worked against Obi’s interests in favour of Tinubu, a claim that Wike has refuted.
On Saturday, March 11,, Gov Wike praised Obi and described him as being the Hero of the 2023 presidential election.
Wike said Obi’s decision to contest the election changed the dynamics of the 2023 presidential election and that Obi’s participation ensured that power was not retained in the North.
In an apparent reaction to Governor Wike’s comment, Senator Sani wrote,
“Wike and Peter. Is like trying to be nice in order to continue a relationship with a lady you jilted, after marrying another.”
