Governor Wike's Aborted Presidential Ambition! by ruleurworld: 3:52pm On Oct 12, 2022
Is Governor Wike a sore looser? To me, I think he is just being unnecessarily bitter and angry over his failed, aborted and botched presidential ambition. Is Wike cunny? He thought he could outsmart everyone in PDP. But at last, he got serve a hot politics 101 breakfast by Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State. The question now is who betrayed Governor Wike? Why is he behaving like a sore looser? Why can't Governor Wike get over his failed presidential primaries defeat? After all, he is not the first to lose a presidential primary election in Nigeria. Vice President Yemi Osibanjo is a reference point here. No doubt, Wike has paid his dues in as a bonafide member of the PDP. But, taking the founding members of PDP for granted was a joke taken too far. Personally, I think he should accept his defeat in good faith, learn its lessons and move on. No victor, no vanquish!
Governor Wike thought he was smart. Where as, he was just being cunny. He wanted to play the game of "it's our turn" in the south to become the Presidential flag bearer of the PDP. From the onset, he had everything well work out or mapped out alongside his liutenants- Governor Otorm, Governor Makinde and Governor Ikpeazu. But first, Prince Secondus must leave the chairmanship positi of the PDP because he is from the south. Again, Secondus was from Rivers State. So, Wike has to sacrifice Secondus because of his presidential ambition. Prince Secondus fought a good fight but he was no match against the powers that be. Eventually, he paid the price of losing its chairmanship position to the powers that be at the top. With the fall and sacrifice of Secondus, Wike thought the coast was as clear as day light for him to clinch his presidential ticket of the PDP. LITTLE did he know that Secondus sacrifice is not pleasing enough to the other contending forces in PDP. With the fall of Secondus, Wike and his liutenants engineered and called for a swift convention where they sponsored and linked for Senator Iyorcha Ayu to become the new chairman of the PDP.
Now, the coast seems all clear for Wike to actualize his dream. If not for WIKE'S incumbency power, Rivers PDP would have preferred to stick with Secondus rather than allow Wike to sacrifice Prince Secondus for his presidential ambition. By booting out Secondus, WIKE'S path was clear for him to shoot his shot. Unfortunately, the northerners had a plan B all along. Note, it was a deliberate plan Wike and his group to have gone for Ayu as the new PDP chairman. Ayu is a christian. Ayu is also from Benue State just like Governor Ortom. Moreover, Ayu is not from the core north but from north central. Wike wanted to hijack the party's structure. In his thought, as long as Ayu is not from the core north they will have some form of control over him through Governor Ortom when it's time for the Presidential primaries. To them, Ayu can be kept in check through Governor Ortom.
As far as Governor Wike is concern, money won't be a problem. After all, Atiku can't be richer than the whole of Rivers state. Governor Wike was willing to empty Rivers state treasury if need be just to win the presidential primaries. What he failed to understand is that in poli
