Gov Wike Highly Likely For PDP VP Ticket by cola: 1:10pm On Oct 08, 2018
OPINION:
Any keen political observer and one who understands how Nigerian politicians think would easily see that gov. Wike had the most bargaining chips to emerge as the running mate to Mr. Atiku.

The old guards in the PDP had their way in the emergence of Atiku, the new leaders of the party would most likely insist on picking the VP slot. Wike leads this group and he'd project someone he trusts or can control for that slot.

The party wants some cohesion in the party and would be more than willing to concede to Wike. Remember, he also has the deepest purse to help the party. He's also known to have threatened the party before.

This would not be Atiku's choice but rather the party's.
Former gov Daniel though, laboured hard with Atiku and should be recognised, but it would be argued that so did the likes of Markafi, Fayose and Wike for the party when it was down. And you can forget all those assemblage of names from the south east.

The odds favour gov. Wike.

Yes, Wike is a first term governor. I'm sure he'd want a lackey in the vice presidency that can hold forte for him and that would position him for a shot at the top ticket in 2023.

wike is a first term governor of a very rich state. am sure he wouldn't gamble a VP slot over a sure second term. however if wike's national alliances is anything to go by, he is more interested in 2023 under the southern zoning ticket. similar to people like apkabio, tinubu, okorocha, fashola, and amaechi

I think the media is blowing this news out of proportion
Re: Gov Wike Highly Likely For PDP VP Ticket by globemoney: 1:36pm On Oct 08, 2018
I dont see Wike wanting any other thing apart from completing his second tenure. Infact I believe Wike will pick his second tenure over being President right now, Wike is very attached to PH, he will only start aspiring for higher office after his second tenure.

As for deep pockets, Atiku does not need Wike, Atiku can fund his election 100%. Atiku only needs international support to win Buhari and the best person to get his that is either Soludo, Akinwunmi Adesina or Okonjo Iweala. I would be surprised if Atiku does not pick between these 3

It's not the media my guy. Did you watch Wike's interview where he was threatening over moving the convention away from PH? Did you read his comments about Atiku on the same matter even though he didn't mention him by name?

I think Wike is gambling on the possibility that even if Buhari wins in 2019, APC will scatter in 2023 after Buhari then he'll be ready to take the spoils.

Anyway, the future is very pregnant and politicians and their politics are very unpredictable. Make we siddon dey look

A bird at hand they say, is worth a thousand in the bush

Wike would rather direct his arsenal towards winning a second term as the Governor of the oil rich River state than gamble with a 50-50 VP ticket.

He however should be able to have a great input into who becomes the VP.

Agree with this 99%. Wike isn't ready for the center yet. Also Atiku doesn't need anybody's money. He can sponsor his own campaign and Buhari's own at the same time.

Atiku needs international support but Soludo is the only one among the three that has political aspirations. Okonjo will not touch Nigerian politics again with a long pole after her past experiences and Adeshina too has a lot of possibilities ahead so why jeopardize it now?

Soludo might clinch it if OBJ settles with Atiku as Soludo is an OBJ person

Soludo is also Atiku's person too, infact Atiku nominated Soludo as CBN governor to obasanjo. The bold had me laughing.. And also, don't forget Atiku financed both the election of Buhari and many APC governors in 2015

The man has deep pockets and i think it's one of the reasons why Wike wasn't so disposed to him. He would be too independent for the mini gods in PDP

Truth is I wanted Gombe governor, but then its good this way. Kwanlwaso I'm order to remain relevant needs to fight for PDP or die politically, now way Shekarau has gone to APC . I just have to support him, Atiku will deliver well, he has the managerial skills to govern a country like Nigeria but my fear is the anti-corruption though I know it can't be worse as bubu own. But who cares, we need a great economy and bubu can't give us that

In politics, the best candidate doesn't always win. It's the best politician that most times carries the day and Atiku was the best politician on the night.

The battle of 2019 will be fierce. whichever way it goes, we will survive and thrive

Atiku might not be picking a running mate all by himself.

I have the feeling the party would be giving Atiku options of names to choose from.

The new brigade leaders of the party led by Wike and the top primaries runners-up would have the privilege of nominating candidates for the VP slot, in order to placate them and forge a united front.
These group would not be nominating Soludo, Iweala et al. They would be nominating their lackeys and trusted people.

I hate when people try to talk boldly on wha they know nothing about. Atiku was the in charge of the economic team under Obasanjos government. Soludo, El Rufai, Okonjo Iweala and many of the people the worked for Obasanjo were all brought in by Atiku. I’m giving you first hand information

Re: Gov Wike Highly Likely For PDP VP Ticket by Dakad: 8:08pm On Oct 08, 2018
In my opinion, Wike is actually smatter. He will rather run for his second term in office than to forfeit that for a gamble. Though Atiku will give PMB a though competition but PMB might likely take the day. It's certain PMB popularity has dropped which everybody knows but I still see him winning the 2019 election.

My advice for the Nigerian Youth on social media is for you guys to prepare for any eventuality in 2019. I just pray some people won't get heart attack or commit suicide which ever way the pendulum swing come 2019. Some of us are really taking this hatred for PMB to the extreme
