The former governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose has backed former Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state to make president Ahmed Tinubu ministerial list believing that Wike has the capacity to be a minister.
Fayose stressed that the president must show gratitude to members of the G5 or Integrity Group within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), having played a crucial role on his victory during the last election.
Fayose said, “What is wrong with that? How is anybody affected by that? I don’t want to be minister but if Asiwaju (Tinubu) says ‘Fayose, you will be minister’ and I agree, what is their headache?”
“I want Wike to be in cabinet. Wike has what it takes to serve Nigeria. Wike is an articulate, capacity person. Nigeria needs (an) average bad person. I support Wike. If Asiwaju finds him or any of the G5 worthy, please serve in Asiwaju’s government.
“I will be disappointed if Asiwaju does not equally appreciate them for what they stand to represent. Wike must serve. Wike is still a young man. I’m his senior brother, he can’t deny that. Wike is an asset to Nigeria. Wike is never timid, he confronts challenges. Asiwaju needs a man like Wike.”
