What Nyesom Wike Told Dave Umahi After He Said God'll Give Nigeria A President Like Buhari In 2023

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is a strong critic of the Buhari led federal government. Also, he has always disagreed with Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi who has a cordial relationship with the President even when he was in the PDP.

Dave Umahi after he visited President Buhari recently said that God will give Nigeria a President like Buhari in 2023.

That statement of Umahi generated a lot of reactions from some Nigerians who were not happy with it. Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is one of those who think Umahi's statement is regrettable.

He has responded to Umahi's statement in a manner that sounds funny. We will be discussing it in this article. 

What did Nyesom Wike tell Umahi? 

According to a report in Punch newspaper, the Rivers State Governor told Umahi that President Buhari himself knows that God won’t give the country another leader like him in 2023. This is funny but I am not surprised because Wike and Umahi appear not to agree on the leadership style of Buhari.

Recall that Wike accused Umahi of nursing a presidential ambition and that was why he joined Buhari's party which is APC. Umahi on his own described Wike as a dictator in PDP. I can vividly recall how Wike and Umahi almost clashed during PDP meeting in 2019.

Wike then described Umahi as Buhari's man while Umahi fired back that he is not one of those that secretly visit the President. My understanding is that Umahi appreciates the qualities of President Buhari and he doesn't hide it.

He told Nigerians that his relationship with President Buhari is like that of a father and a son.

Wike sees himself as a "one-man squad" who doesn't need to dance to the tune of the federal government to implement his policies.

To Umahi, Buhari is a man with a good heart while to Wike, the federal government led by Buhari has not favoured Rivers State and it appears he is not bothered.
