A former militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has mocked the presidential ambition of the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
It was reported that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State recently declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election.
He unveiled his intentions in Markurdi during talks with Governor Samuel Ortom and some delegates of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking about Wike’s presidential ambition, Asari Dokubo said that Governor Nyesom Wike does not look like a president thus the desire to be one can’t come to fruition.
He made this known on Arise TV in reaction to questions on Wike’s visit to former Heads of State, Ibrahim Babangida, and Abdulsalam Abubakar.
He said, “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?
“He 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?”
