Nothing wrong with Wike, other G-5 in Tinubu’s government – Fayose

Must read

A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said there is nothing wrong if President Bola Tinubu decides to appreciate members of the G-5 or Integrity Group with appointments.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme, Fayose also said the immediate past governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, has what it takes to be a minister and “must serve” in the Tinubu’s government.

The G-5 is made up of four PDP ex-governors — Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Samuel Ortom (Benue), and Nyesom Wike (Rivers) as well as one current governor, Seyi Makinde (Oyo).

Reacting to Wike’s speculated appointment, Fayose said: “What is wrong with that? How is anybody affected by that? I don’t want to be a minister but if Asiwaju (Tinubu) says ‘Fayose, you will be minister’ and I agree, what is their headache?

“I want Wike to be in the cabinet. Wike has what it takes to serve Nigeria. Wike is an articulate, capable person. If Asiwaju finds him or any of the G5 worthy, please serve in Asiwaju’s government.”
