He will be a resistance inside the resistance.

When he dispatches an assault against Atiku, he will simply proclaim for Peter Obi.

“He is covertly supporting Peter Obi. It will be exactly the same thing Rauf Aregbesola did to them in Osun State. However Aregbesola didn’t evacuate, he just taught his allies to back Ademola Adeleke. It is a similar card Wike might play during the missions.”
