Wike Endorses Sanwo-Olu – What it Means for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Following Governor Nyesom Wike’s most recent action, the crisis roiling the opposition PDP is about to fully start.
Wike has chosen to continue with his political career and take on significant projects in his state and elsewhere, in spite of appeals from Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and some key PDP stakeholders.
In a recent incident, the governor of Rivers state supported his counterpart, Babajide Sanmwo-Olu, of Lagos state, for reelection in 2023.
The PDP governor’s action would endanger Dr. Olajide Adediran, also known as Jandor, the party’s candidate for governor of Lagos state.
