Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has revealed what he would do if he did not get the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He said he would still remain at the party if he failed to clinch the ticket.
Wike stated this while addressing stakeholders of the Niger State chapter of the PDP on his intention to contest for president at the party secretariat in Minna on Saturday, adding that there was nothing wrong with a consensus candidate if it is based on equity, justice, and fairness.
Wike solicited stakeholders’ support in the state party to enable him to become the flag bearer of the party, adding that he is the only candidate who is capable of defeating the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.
“I am here today to tell you that I have made myself available to run for the seat of the president of this country under our party, PDP, I have been a member of the PDP since 1988, I have never left the party and I will never leave.
“I can become the president if I get the mandate of delegates to make me the flag bearer. The country needs someone who will see white and call it white and black and call it black and that person is me,” he said.
