Wike said he would not have taken the VP slot, given his character and personality, but at least he should have been given the offer of first refusal.

Wike went on to hint on how prepared he is to attack and demolish the Muslim Muslim ticket of APC, adding that, he’s in possession of official and classified documents indicating Shettima over #ChibokGirls and his involvement with the Boko Haram sect, adding that, he was a Minister then and could account for what happened then.
