Lamido’s Comments On Wike Spark Reactions On Twitter
The comments made by former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido about Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State have sparked reactions online.
Naija News earlier reported that Lamido, during an interview on Channels television on Tuesday, had described the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, as a bluff.
Lamido said this while reacting to the rift between the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and Wike.
The former Governor, when asked if the people of Rivers State would follow Wike’s directive, Lamido said they can decide to be slaves to Wike whom he called an emperor.
He wondered why Wike is angry with Atiku, adding that it is the convention of the PDP that the Rivers State governor should be angry with and not the former vice president.
Lamido noted that the people that met with Wike and Atiku are not sent by the party but well-wishers who want the crisis resolved.
However, some netizens took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to slam the former Jigawa governor for calling Wike an emperor and a dictator.
Below are some of the reactions below.

@fubyhalliday wrote: “So this Sule Lamido feel we in Rivers will choose to support him and Atiku against Wike?
My prayer every day is that my Gov should not listen to any reconciliation again. Let’s rock the boat and see how far.”

He once came on TV to bash his southern brother Peter Obi for Northern “Likes and followership” Now they are showing him d true meaning of brotherhood. I’m only just anticipating his band’s next single nothing more.”
