PDP Govs Nominated People For Appointments In Tinubu’s Govt – Wike

Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), asserted on Wednesday that governors chosen on the PDP platform recommended individuals for positions in President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet.

This assertion was made by the former Rivers State governor in an interview with Channels TV.

Wike asserted that the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration sought political nominations from both opposition and ruling party governors.

The minister said, “I never said PDP governors nominated ministers; I never said so. I said this (Tinubu) government wrote to all the governments of PDP and APC to nominate people for appointment.

“PDP governors nominated people for appointments. Appointment is appointment both as Boards and Commissions.

“I challenged anybody who is a governor of PDP that never wrote any letter to this government for so and so people to be appointed under this government. Nobody has come to challenge me.”

Wike had previously stated that he continues to be a PDP member despite working in the APC administration, according to
