He is arguably Nigeria’s most controversial Governor. He leads a cult group of loyal politicians who believed in his political ideologies.
The jovial and lovable Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has reincarnated in one of the little but politically conscious town in Ekiti, a South Westerner State of Nigeria.
The “as e dey pain dem, e dey sweet us, as e dey sweet us, e dey pain dem” crooner, now has a ‘carbon copy’ of him in Ekiti. A reporter of Omonaijablog.com.ng in Ekiti State who met the young man whose name is Oluwaseun Omoyeni said; Mr. Omoyeni has adopted the name ‘Wike of Ekiti’.
Speaking to Omonaijablog.com.ng reporter, Omoyeni said; “I adopted the name Wike of Ekiti out of my admiration for Gov. Wike. My ambition is to meet him and present him an award of Mr. Project of Nigeria and the best “Outspoken Governor” of this dispensation.”
“I have been admiring Gov. Wike since he became a voice in People’s Democratic Party, PDP. He is outspoken and fearless yet loved by his people.
“In our town, people do call me Wike Ekiti because they can observe his traits in me. So, one day, maybe if God wills, very soon I will meet him one on one.”
A maverick and a good dresser, ‘wicked Wike’ as Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, used to call him now has his carbon copy in Ekiti.
