Ebonyi governor Umahi mocks Ayu, asks Tinubu to integrate Wike into his government

Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi, has called on the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, to integrate Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, into his government.

Umahi said this on Monday during the commissioning of the remodeled Community Secondary school, in Obio-Akpor local government area, Rivers State.

The Ebonyi State governor said Wike has “a lot to offer for the unity of the country” which would be highly beneficial to the Tinubu-led Federal Government.

“We all need to understand the mind of God as soon as you trace beyond the ordinary eyes the emergence of Bola Tinubu as the president-elect of Nigeria and Kashim Shettima as the president-elect which I see as the act of God.

“I, however, commend Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, for the great role he played in Tinubu winning the 2023 presidential election as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).


“And for this, Tinubu needs to integrate Wike into his government after his swearing-in because he has a lot to offer the country. And it’s not all about parties. He has a lot to offer.

“It’s about the unit of the country and also about how to move this country forward. It’s about how to reunite our people. I just wanted to say please bring Governor Wike into the federal government.”

Wike, a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), is reported to have worked for Tinubu during the presidential election after a fallout with Atiku Abubakar.

The Rivers State governor’s reported alliance with Tinubu was preceded by a meeting with APC governors in 2022. They include former Ekiti State governor Kayode Fayemi; his Ondo State counterpart and chairman of the Southern governors forum, Rotimi Akeredolu, and Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Also at the event, Umahi caimed that Iyorchia Ayu, the embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, worked for the emergence of Bola Tinubu as the president-elect.

Umahi insisted that Tinubu must know that Ayu worked for him so he could integrate him into the next administration.

”I want to also thank the suspended Chairman of the PDP. He did very well because if he had accepted to resign, it would have been very difficult for the APC. So he is our man, and I commend him very, very well. And I am begging Wike that they should lift the suspension so that he can suspend many more of their leaders. We love what he has done, and so we commend him. I think Asiwaju must know that he worked for him and must also integrate him into the next administration,” Umahi said.

Ayu was suspended by the Benue State branch of the PDP, an action he had described as an exercise in futility.
