Reno Omokri, a well-known author and former presidential spokesman, discussed what the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ought to have done to guarantee their win in the 2023 presidential election on his verified X (Twitter) page.
He claimed that failing to select Nyesom Wike for vice president in the 2023 presidential contest was one of the PDP’s errors. Though Wike might be too assertive to be a follower, he admitted that in politics, one must do what is necessary rather than what they enjoy doing. He went on to say that Wike is a superior candidate for president and will cause trouble for any president he deputies for.
Speaking further, Reno Omokri stated that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) should have taken abnormal steps in the 2023 presidential election, like making Nyesom Wike the running mate of Atiku Abubakar. He further stated that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu understood the game of politics better, and that was why he emerged as the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
According to him, “The biggest mistake we made in the PDP during the 2023 presidential election was not giving Wike the vice Presidential slot of our party. By how many votes did we lose to the APC? Less than two million. If we had a running mate like Wike, we would have gotten that votes from Rivers, Oyo, Abia, Enugu, and Benue with the G-5 governors. President Bola Tinubu understood the game better than us (the PDP).”
