Wike, who worked relentlessly to endear himself to the minds of the majority of the party members, adding that the leadership of the PDP grossly underestimated Gov. Wike by changing the goal post at the middle of the game by selling out the soul of the party to Atiku.On the APC’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket, the activist described it as divine, saying that it is an indication that God does not want the party to continue holding on to power in Nigeria, saying that by the Muslim-Muslim ticket, the party has succeeded in alienating themselves from Nigerians, which according to him means that they already have lost the election before the election proper for recognising only one section of the divide. Reacting to Gov. Soludo’s score card in his first 100 days in office, Sir Silas Ikeh described the governor’s performance as very encouraging, saying that Gov. Soludo has started very well trying to stamp his feet on the ground, and adding that the governor deserves commendation especially in the area of security, market development, transportation, road maintenance, health care,etc.Concluding, Sir Ikeh opined that he is confident Gov Soludo will surpass his predecessors’ achievements, appealing to ndi Anambra to be patient and cooperate with the governor by giving Soludo’s administration maximum support.
