Jul 31, 2023 #Politics

Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe has said that former Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike’s ministerial nomination is “compensation” for his role in Bola Tinubu’s election as President. 

Appearing on a Channels Television program, Ogunlewe who is a former Lagos federal lawmaker noted that Wike was not the only one that worked for the success of the APC in the presidential election. He stated that former Governors Dave Umahi and Nasir El-Rufai merit their nominations based on their antecedents.

He said; 

“It is so easy to decipher. If you are following the development that cumulated in the last election, you would know the role Wike played and you must give him compensation for that role.

“Everybody participated actively in the success of the APC, whether you are in opposition or not.” 

Ogunlewe warned the nominees not work against the party’s manifesto, adding that Tinubu “will not allow you [cabinet members] to mess him up”.
