A former Niger Delta militant Asari Dokubo has mocked Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike over the latter’s presidential ambition.
Dokubo said Wike’s ambition was “laughable” and that the governor does not have the looks of a president.
“It’s laughable that Wike wants to be president. Look at him, does he look like a president? Will Nigerians want a president like that?” Dokubo said during an interview on Arise TV.
Wike has been meeting political stakeholders as he aims to sell his candidacy. He recently visited former military rulers, Abdulsalami Abubakar and Ibrahim Babangida, in Minna, Niger State.
“He (Wike) himself should know that it’s not possible. Yes, everybody is entitled to contest. It’s our PVCs and we are going to examine the person. Somebody who carried cutlass and was dancing will want to be president?” Dokubo asked.
Wike already has the backing of Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom.
