The dislike for the person of Omoyele Sowore was attributed as the major reason why Wike and his counterparts opposed the protests and acted indifferently to his arrest by the DSS.
According to Femi, “I suspect that the reason Wike has taken the position that he has taken and the reason that so many other leading figures in the official opposition PDP has taken a queue from him and distanced themselves from the protest is because of their personal dislike and disdain for Sowore who really has very few friends in the political class or in the ranks of the official opposition party.
Yet I believe that those that have fallen into the trap of not standing by Sowore or speaking up for him when they know that he is being treated unjustly, his rights are being violated and he is suffering persecution are being shortsighted and naive.
In a time of crisis and especially when we are contending with a dangerous and merciless despot we all need each other regardless of how we feel about one another or whatever contentious issues, conflicts, disagreements and fights we may have had in the past. That is common sense!
Watch Dangote tell his success story
In a time of war my enemy’s enemy, out of expediency, necessity and good old-fashioned pragmatism, automatically becomes my friend.
Failing to grasp that point and holding on to it could prove to be fatal to our collective cause and objective. No man can take on Government on his own: we all need each other.”
