Fani-Kayode was never my friend, he wasn’t useful in PDP - Wike


Fani-Kayode and Wike

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has denied ever being friend with Femi Fani-Kayode, who recently jumped ship from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC).

Wike while reacting to the move in an exclusive interview with BBC Pidgin said he is no friends with Fani-Kayode noting that the former Aviation minister was not useful for PDP before.

“I don’t know why people are saying they are shocked, you see it’s not everybody that speaks you take seriously. Some people speak because of what they want to eat, others speak so save them from problem they have if they can be saved. I and Femi are not friends, he said one of the governors he reached is Rivers State, he can’t reach me, it can’t work, I don’t like artificial things. I and Femi don’t talk,” Wike said.

The Rivers governor noted that the former minister hails from Osun and questioned what he won in Osun State. ‘What has he done for the PDP?” Wike asked.

The Rivers governor who reacted to rumors that former President Goodluck Jonathan would join the APC said he would advise the ex-president not to think of such move.

Wike said if he sees Jonathan, he would tell him to not go anywhere as they want to spoil his reputation. He noted that they don’t like the former president.

The Rivers governor said the APC is only trying to bring people from PDP and destroy them so they won’t have anywhere else to go again.

Wike said he respects former President Jonathan and if he is able to advise him he would tell him not to make such a mistake.
