Between Nyesom Wike and PDP - ITREALMS

Commentary@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!


Nigerians must thank Ezenwo Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for enriching the dramaturgy of Nigerian politics today. Nyesom Wike continually provides rich content, positive and negative, and forces conversations on power distribution, federalism, and Politics in Nigeriana. Wike stands out in the Fourth Republic for deepening the fought component.
Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State
The Governor of Rivers State is often in the news for audacity. I was in Port Harcourt in mid-September and saw first-hand the audacious infrastructural transformation of the oil city by the executive actions of Nyesom Wike. It is impressive. I previously lived at D-Line Port Harcourt and could not recognise Garrison Bus Stop and several other parts of the city. Port Harcourt bespeaks infrastructure boldly. It is all so fitting as Wike is one of the acclaimed Port Harcourt Boys in the Port Harcourt Son ditty of Duncan Mighty.

Troubling questions for Kassim Shettima by Chido Nwakanma - ITREALMS

Commentary@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Are the many blunders of APC vice-presidential candidate Kashim Ibrahim Shettima errors, or do they speak to a dangerous mindset to which all Nigerians should pay attention now? Is Alhaji Shettima cleverly setting a plan in the dissimulation model and secretly enjoying the buzz and distraction they create in the media? What is the strategic intent when an otherwise brilliant man commits elementary errors?
Senator Kashim Shettima, APC vice presidential candidate for 2023 elections
The office of vice president is critical in the 2023 Nigerian general elections. The vice president is a heartbeat away from the president’s seat. It is even more so for Nigeria, with two geriatrics among the candidates seeking to be president.
