Rivers State Governor and 2023 presidential hopeful, Nyesom Wike has submitted that some persons within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) don’t deserve the party’s ticket.
He stated without mentioning specific names that such persons abandoned the party back in 2015 when it lost the presidential pols while some others in the same category worked against the PDP to install President Muhammadu Buhari who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Wike told party delegates in the state that he has always remained with the party and urged them to give him their support.
“The issue is, who are those who made PDP to lose election in 2015 that today we are suffering? Today, we are in opposition and trying to take power back.
“But see what the country has been turned into. Who are those who told Nigerians that President Buhari is a saint, that President Buhari will salvage Nigeria. What is their sense of judgment. Who are those aspirants who abandoned PDP, betrayed PDP and went to support President Buhari?,” Wike stated.
The Rivers State Governor also lashed out at the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying the country has been plagued with insecurity under his watch while many Nigerians are getting killed on a daily basis.
He said: “Now we are suffering. People are dying everyday. From January to March in Kaduna, over 1000 people have been killed. So many people have been kidnapped.”
Wike, therefore, charged Nigerians on the need to exhibit extra caution in choosing their next leader come 2023.
