Sule Lamido, former governor of Jigawa state, has said Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is a responsible man with some youthful exuberance.
Lamido who spoke in an interview session, said some people are inciting Wike after the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar picked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state over him as his running mate.
He also asked Wike to be humble and learn lessons from Peter Odili and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
The former Governor said;
“We did a national convention. The highest gathering of decision-making of the PDP chose Atiku. Wike contested and lost. Wike is a responsible and committed man but there is some youthful exuberance in him.
“There are people that are inciting him but the deed has been done and this did not start now. It happened with Peter Odili, it happened with Osinbajo. He should learn a lesson from them.”
On the PDP crisis, Lamido said;
“It is not a crime to have internal friction in politics. What is important is to have people with wisdom, and competent people to solve the problem. PDP members should be at ease we won’t disappoint them, everything will be resolved.”
On claims of him being nepotistic after his son emerged as the governorship candidate of the opposition party in Jigawa state, he asked why some people are upset with him for loving his son.
“Is it a crime to love my son? I think my only crime in Jigawa is having children. Who doesn’t love his children?”
