How Wike-Tinubu's relationship started

Nyesom Wike's relationship with Tinubu became public following the crisis that rocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 election.

The then governor of Rivers state had led four other governors of the party, known as the G5, to work against the presidential bid of the PDP over the claim that the southern bloc in the party had been sidelined.
