Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that it will be difficult for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to return to government in 2023 if there is disunity among party members.
Wike, who noted that the ongoing crisis in the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, is an advantage the PDP must quickly grab, said the opposition may however also miss out in the race if leaders are not united.
Naija News understands that Wike made the observations on Monday, January 10 when he paid a courtesy visit to his Bayelsa State counterpart, Sen. Duoye Diri at the Government House, Yenagoa.
The Rivers State Governor stressed that there is a need for stakeholders in the PDP to remain united and formidable ahead of the 2023 general elections.
According to Wike, citizens are already waiting for the PDP to return to power to salvage the country from the APC administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He insists that the opposition party may face challenges nominating a presidential candidate if the governors and the other members were not united.
