“Aboy Disembark from that careless capping, who you wan leave this ship for? Aboy die it!”

Rinu Oduala: Wike is like a cat with nine lives.

Bayelsan: f I see this Wike man on any ballot whether as Vice President or assistant Vice President, I am voting him. Even if I see him on my bet9ja ticket... I am voting him. Period!

Ebuka Obi-Uchendu: So we will not dance to Wike's live band during campaign season

Everest: I was expecting PDP to solidify the SS with Wike.

The second option would have been Udom Emmanuel. But they went with Ifeanyi Okowa because they wanted to take from SS and SE. It played right into the hands of Peter Obi and the Labour party.

APC and PDP are aiding Peter Obi.
