Why Wike Did Not Invite Tambuwal To Launch Project – Group

 

Wike, Tambuwal, Others Shun PDP Inauguration Of Osun Governorship Campaign Council

A group identified as Arewa Paradigm Shift has revealed why the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal was not invited to Rivers State, by the state Governor, Nyesom Wike to commission projects.

Recall that Governor Wike invited the former Governor of the Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko, to inaugurate a project in the state last week.

Wamakko one of the founding fathers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) inaugurated the Ogbum-Nu-Abali Eastern Bypass road.

The Director of Mobilisation of the group, Adamu Musa-Illela, in a statement released in Kaduna on Saturday said Wamakko was invited because he is more influential than Tambuwal.

Musa-Illela wrote, “Wike knows that Wamakko, being the ‘godfather’ of the North-West APC, is a more influential political figure in the North than the Sokoto state’s helmsman (Tambuwal).

“Governor Wike sent a formal letter of invitation to this godfather of Sokoto politics because the Rivers helmsman knows those that matter the most politically in the North today. Wamako is a tactician that helped Buhari win the North-West in 2015 and 2019.

“To be politically relevant in the North-West today, political heavyweights like Wamako are necessary alliance partners for victory.”
