In the wake of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s ministerial appointments, speculation is rife among Nigerians, with the term ‘Rerun’ gaining significant traction. The conjecture stems from the appointment of Nyesom Wike, the former Governor of Rivers State, as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister.
President Tinubu’s government unveiled the full list of ministerial portfolios late Wednesday night. Wike’s appointment as the FCT Minister, along with Festus Keyamo’s position as Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, are among the notable announcements.
However, the appointment of Wike has stirred controversy and mixed reactions, given the unproven allegations of his involvement in election rigging in Rivers State during the 2023 presidential campaign. As a result, the possibility of a ‘Rerun’ ruling by the Election Petition Tribunal is being widely speculated.
At the time of writing, ‘Rerun’ is a trending topic on Twitter, featuring in over thirteen thousand tweets related to Wike’s appointment.
