River State Governor, Nyesom Wike said Nigeria would shake the day the southern region would declare its decision on the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.
Wike Speaks On 2023 Presidency
Speaking on Saturday at a reception organized in his honour by the Kalabari people, the governor said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not give its presidential ticket to any candidate who would not serve the public interest.
He said, “The day the South will speak, Nigeria will shake. We believe in the unity of this country, but nobody can threaten us; nobody should threaten us. We believe in the unity of Nigeria and the unity of Nigeria must continue.”
The governor noted that some desperate politicians are already plotting for a candidate who would serve the interest of the affluent few.
Wike said, “No amount of gang-up can make PDP give somebody who will want to run an election for the interest of some big men, and not for all Nigerians. Anybody who wants to be a candidate of PDP must be a candidate for the interest of Nigerians.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Nyesom Wike had claimed that based on his records as Minister as well as the governor of Rivers State, no one is more qualified than him to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
