Wike Must Serve In Tinubu’s Government And G5 Should Be Appreciated, Says Fayose

President Bola Tinubu should thank the G5 or Integrity Group members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for their contribution to his victory in the February 25, 2023 presidential election, according to former governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose.

Nyesom Wike, the former governor of Rivers State, “must serve” in the Tinubu administration, according to Fayose, who spoke on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics program.

He asserted that while the G5 does not intend to defect from the PDP to the current ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the PDP leadership still needs to clean its house.

“Samuel Ortom, a former governor of Benue, is the oldest person in his age group. His kids must disown him if he’s still emigrating. The Wike I know doesn’t think of leaving the PDP, Fayose declared.

“I want Wike to be in cabinet. Wike has what it takes to serve Nigeria. Wike is an articulate, capacity person. Nigeria needs (an) average bad person. I support Wike. If Asiwaju finds him or any of the G5 worthy, please serve in Asiwaju’s government.

“I will be disappointed if Asiwaju does not equally appreciate them for what they stand to represent. Wike must serve. Wike is still a young man. I’m his senior brother, he can’t deny that. Wike is an asset to Nigeria. Wike is never timid, he confronts challenges. Asiwaju needs a man like Wike.”

The G5 is made up of one current governor, Seyi Makinde (Oyo), four PDP ex-governors: Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Samuel Ortom (Benue), and Nyesom Wike (Rivers).
