Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has told delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State that he is the only presidential aspirant that can truly secure electoral victory for the party in the 2023 general election.

 

Speaking during his consultation with them in Benin City on Thursday, Wike said the PDP needed a candidate who could take power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) courageously and that he is the only person who could defeat them in 2023.

 

“What PDP needs now is to win the election. It is about who has the capacity to face APC. I think I am the one amongst all of us with such capacity.

 

“This party has given me everything and I owe it a duty to work for the party to make sure it takes over power in 2023. I have not left this party since 1998 And I am not going to leave the party.

 

“If we truly want to win this election, give me the opportunity, give me the ticket and wait to see what will happen in 2023. Giving me a ticket means we are almost there. This excuse of our party losing the election will end by using Wike as the candidate of the PDP.”

 

Wike reiterated that Nigeria required a leader with courage who would fearlessly steer the affairs of the country towards tackling the current problems of insecurity, and lack of growth in the economic sector.

 

He wondered how the nation’s economy could be good when there is insecurity.

 

According to him, “who will come to invest in a country that is largely not secured and how would agriculture flourish when farmers can not go to the farm?

 

“The major thing in governance is the protection of life and property. Then you’ll see that all other things will follow.

 

“If people cannot go to school, if people cannot go out in the evening then what is the essence of governance?”

 

The governor pointed out that first of all, PDP must win the election with the right candidate who is people-oriented before addressing those problems.

 

Wike stated that he is fully prepared for the office that he seeks with such capability to assemble the best brains who will not rest on their oars because of the committed leadership that he will provide.
