Gov Nyesom Wike has advised the Ikwerre LGA boss, Samuel Nwanosike, to learn to respect party elders. Nwanosike is striving to convince the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) elders to give him a second term. When that was looking gloomy, he came out to take newsmen round to showcase his projects, hoping that performance would win public support over party elders.
Now, Gov Wike seems to have delivered the subtle verdict when he urged party in the area to use Mrs Nwanediye Priscila Mark’s 90th birthday to work in unison for the development to the area.
He also used the occasion to extol the chairman of Ikwerre local government, Samuel Nwanosike for his commitment to the development of the area.
Governor Wike, however urged Nwanosike to respect party leaders and ensure that all stakeholders work in unison to move the State forward.
The governor who was accompanied by the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, announced donation of N50 million to the church.
