Former Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, has stated that if President Bola Tinubu offers him an appointment, he will consult his wife, friends, and allies before making a decision.
Although Wike belongs to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he worked for the victory of President Tinubu, the APC’s candidate.
Wike clarified that Tinubu had not discussed any appointment offer with him, but he hinted at willingness to serve if approached.
Given his contribution to Tinubu’s victory, there have been speculations that Wike may be “rewarded” with a political appointment.
In an interview published by BBC, Wike said President Tinubu had not discussed any appointment offer with him.
Nevertheless, the former Rivers state governor said he can’t say he is too big to serve the country if he is offered an appointment.
Wike said: “The man has never told me he wanted to give me an appointment. You can’t say you are too big to serve your country, but the man has never told me one day that he wanted to give me an appointment.
“If he asks me, I will ask my wife and friends. I will ask people what they think about it. Then I will also see whether I am prepared.”
