The Special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said his principal choice to ignore the “combative, truculent, if not at times insulting” disposition of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
The spokesperson said the President would have dealt with Governor Wike and the former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, for their “anti-Buhari tendency” but he chose to tolerate the duo as a father of the nation.
Wike, who belonged to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had recently appreciated the President for approving the refund of 78.9billion Naira to Rivers State for the repair of federal roads. A total sum of 148billion Naira had been approved by the Federal Executive Council to five states including Rivers, Cross River, Bayelsa, Ondo, and Osun States.
In a piece published today being Friday on his website and entitled, ‘Wike Vindicates Buharists’, Adesina described the recent action of Governor Wike as one that was in a “completely different direction compared to what he had always said of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
Adesina wrote; “The Wike we knew was either usually crying wolf where there was none, alleging that the Federal Government wanted to kill him, or claiming that he was not answerable to the central government at Abuja in any way, or even pontificating that the President and his political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), had failed the country in diverse ways.
If not for the maturity, and the avuncular attitude of President Buhari to all state governors, it would have been easy for one to conclude that he and Wike were enemies. Forsworn ones.”
“There was also the then Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, who had formed a tag team with Wike in the anti-Buhari tendency. The President could have dealt with them in many ways, either overtly or covertly, but he let them be. He was a father ready to tolerate his many children, irrespective of their differing idiosyncrasies, propensities and predilections,” he added.

2023: Northern Groups Drums Support For Another Goodluck Jonathan Presidency
According to the newspaper, groups in the region believe that if Jonathan becomes president, northern interest will benefit and are now trying to build the momentum to return him as president.
An unnamed source privy to the plan by the northern groups reportedly said the support for Jonathan has a strong chance of getting the backing from both the northern and southeastern parts of the country.
The source who was not named said:
“My brother, you know there is no way the North will support the agitation of the Southeast for the presidency, but we all know that if Jonathan comes out that the Southeast will not oppose him,” a source who is not directly involved but privy to the plot disclosed.”
The source reportedly said the northern groups behind the plan are trying to get Governor Nyesom Wike who is considered an ally of the former president to support the idea.
However, it should be noted that Goodluck Jonathan in the past has denied any interest in contesting for the presidency.
Onyeka said the entire southeast must unite to achieve the 2023 presidential ambition. The APC chieftain said if the party can get it right in Anambra, the southeast will unite for the common goal in 2023.
