Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike on Tuesday visited the Katsina home of Hajia Aya Dada Yar’Adua, mother of late President Umar Yar’Adua who died while in office 12 years ago, Naija News reports
The surprise visit of the governor is believed to be a part of his effort to clinch the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The video that has surfaced online captured the moment the governor visited the mother of the late president while she laid frail on the bed.
Despite the efforts, Nigerians on social media, seeming unimpressed, called out the governor for showing care as a way of getting favour for the 2023 elections.
