By Kalu Nwokoro Idika
The executive governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje has told his colleague in Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, that he will lose the presidential election in 2023 but will end up as a “good loser”.
Ganduje made the remark when Wike paid him a visit in Kano on Monday as part of his consultations for the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Kano State governor, who did not mince words in the viral video that surfaced online after their meeting, told Wike that “At the end of it (election), you will lose but you will be a good loser.
“I appreciate good losers because they have the courage and since you are doing this peacefully, then you will live long to fight again.
“When your opponents, when those who are fighting you describe you as ‘wicked Wike,’ I listen to the speech across the country, as he (so) this Wike is not wicked but this Wike is the wise Wike. So, I congratulate you, the wise Wike. Thank you and God bless.”
Meanwhile, Wike during the visit had said he would probably have abandoned his presidential ambition if Ganduje had decided to join the race to save Nigeria.
“If Ganduje is running for the presidency, some of us will quickly withdraw our ambitions, but thanks he is not running and I’m sure he will help me to make it,” Wike reportedly said.
He added that party differences should not make them work against the country but come together to salvage the country.
