The Oyo State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dayo Ogungbenro has explained why Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State recently endorsed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term in Lagos State.

According to Ogungbenro, the endorsement is just a political statement used to call PDP to order. He also added that the PDP leadership can’t sanction Wike for anti-party activities because of that particular action.

Asked if the PDP may consider sanctioning Wike, Ogungbenro replied: “For what! That’s politics for you. Has Atiku been sanctioned for reneging on the earlier agreement? What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. It’s a mere political statement to knock them to submission.”

It will be recalled that despite having a candidate for the Lagos governorship election, Wike openly endorsed Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while speaking at the 22nd National Women’s Conference organized by the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO) back in October 2022.

He told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), candidate, Olajide Adeniran, also known as Jandor that he and others seeking to become the next Lagos Governor in 2023 are only wasting their time.
