Hey there, middle schoolers! Today, we’re going to talk about a guy named Nyesom Wike who wants to be the king of not just one, but two political parties. Sounds pretty ambitious, right?
So, this guy named Dele Momodu, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), spilled the beans about Wike’s big plans. He said that Wike has a ton of resources at his disposal, which makes him really powerful and hard to resist.
Now, there was this person on the internet who criticized the PDP for not taking a stand against Wike. They thought the party should have done something bold to stop him. They even suggested that Wike might have some secret information that makes him untouchable by PDP leaders.
Dele Momodu, in response to this criticism, said something pretty interesting. He compared Wike to a pesky tsetse fly that’s really hard to get rid of. He explained that Wike has so much power and influence because of the resources he has, thanks to the PDP. And because of that, he wants to be in charge of not just one, but two political parties at the same time!
Now, here’s a little background on Wike. He is a member of the PDP, but during the 2023 presidential election, he actually worked against his own party. Instead, he supported President Bola Tinubu, who was running for president. And guess what? Tinubu won the election!
As a reward for his support, Tinubu appointed Wike as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). But here’s the interesting part: even though Wike went against his own party, the PDP hasn’t taken any action against him. Some people in Nigeria are really upset about this, but the PDP seems to be staying quiet
So, there you have it, middle schoolers. Nyesom Wike is a guy who wants to have power in not just one, but two political parties. He has a lot of resources and influence, which makes him a force to be reckoned with. And even though he went against his own party, the PDP hasn’t done anything about it. It’s definitely an interesting situation in the world of politics!
