Like Alhassan for Atiku, another Minister campaigns for Wike

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, appears to have chided his fellow minister, Rotimi Amaechi, in a trending video on social media.

Speaking on Monday in Port Harcourt during the national wrestling championship hosted by the Rivers State government, the video shows Mr Dalung telling Rivers youth to ask anyone seeking their votes to give an account of their stewardship when they were given the opportunity.

2019, anybody wey come dey halla, dey talk long grammar, make una ask am one question; the one wey we give you, wetin you do with am,” he said in pidgin English.

Mr Dalung continued, “Even Governor Wike if him come in 2019, make him show una the one him do including the road. But I know say una go give (vote) am because him done do this one for una.”

The sports minister also challenged anyone who is ‘angry’ that Mr Wike is hosting the championship to bring his money and do the same.

Why this matters: Mr Wike is a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), while Mr Amaechi and Mr Dalung are members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Also, Mr Wike, who succeeded Mr Amaechi as Rivers governor, is a sworn enemy of his predecessor.

This is not the first time a member of President Buhari’s cabinet will be making a controversial endorsement.

Earlier this year, the Minister for Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, endorsed a former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, for the 2019 presidential election.
