I’ll replicate Rivers’ feat for Nigeria – Wike

PDP presidential candidate and Rivers governor Nyesom Wike has stated that if elected President in 2023, he will emulate Rivers’ socioeconomic progress and infrastructure development.
Wike made the remarks on Saturday in Jos, Nigeria, when he addressed delegates who will determine the destiny of Peoples Democratic Party hopefuls ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The governor stated that the massive improvement he brought to Rivers was obvious to everybody.

“The reason I am here is to let you know that I have offered myself to run for the office of the President of Nigeria on the platform of the PDP.

“I have remained in this party since 1998 and I have not gone anywhere. I know PDP more than anyone today.

“If I get the ticket, I will win the election for PDP.

“You know those who have capacity; see what I have done in Rivers. I will replicate that in Nigeria and do even more,” he said.

The governor told the delegates that if elected President of Nigeria, he would address the security challenges bedeviling the country.

He commended the Plateau PDP for winning Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency by-election held in February, describing the victory as a sign of what will happen in 2023.

Plateau PDP chairman Chris Hassan commended Wike for the role he played in resolving the crises that rocked the state in the recent past.

Hassan said that Plateau delegates were ready and would support his ambitions and dream to transform Nigeria for the better.

“Today, you are here seeking the support of Plateau to lead Nigeria. I can assure you that what we give you as people of Plateau is endorsement,” he said.

Sen. Istifanus Gyang (Plateau North/PDP), lauded Wike for his achievements as Rivers governor.

“If leadership is about courage, you have shown it; and If leadership is about development, you have demonstrated it well,” he added.
