In the quirky world of Nigerian politics, disappointment has enveloped some detractors of Nyesom Wike and this has left the bad belle people scratching their heads in amusement and confusion. In what looks like the phrase, “Nyendeba, Nyendeba,” often associated with the former governor of Rivers State, President Bola Tinubu may have embraced the simple yet enigmatic phrase of ‘Nyendeba, Nyendeba’: “Give to this people (APC) and give to the other people (PDP).” In other words, when you give to one side, also give to the other side.
Meanwhile, in the land of political alliances and unexpected twists, President Tinubu emerged victorious in elections under the banner of the All Progressives Congress (APC). However, as he assumed office, something utterly bewildering to haters of Wike happened.
