Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the presidential hopeful for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and governor of Rivers State, claims that if he is elected, his presidency will provide strong and productive leadership to Nigeria.
Governor Wike made the claim to journalists after appearing before the PDP’s presidential screening committee at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Friday.
The Rivers State governor, who boasted about how well-prepared he is for the presidency of Nigeria, insisted that he is ready to address the country’s endemic insecurity, which has nearly paralyzed the country.
Governor Wike said he reminded members of the screening committee flatly that without security, nothing worthwhile can be accomplished in any sector of the economy.
“I told them that it’s obvious that the major problem in this country today is the issue of insecurity. If you cannot tackle insecurity then there is nothing to talk about. I believe that if you bring (reduce) the situation of insecurity to a level where people are happy then you can talk about the economy. So, you can’t talk about the economy without talking about the environment being safe.”
Governor Wike stated that before the government can properly focus on strengthening agriculture in order to provide food security for the people, farmers’ confidence must be restored so that they can return to their farms without fear of being maimed.
“You cannot talk about improving agriculture when people cannot go to the farm. So, everything revolves around security and that requires also a strong leadership. That also requires a courageous leadership and that is what I have,” Wike said.
