Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has stated that governors and other stakeholders in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will work relentlessly to ensure that the party produces the next Nigerian president in 2023.
He advised those stirring the flames of discontent over the presidential ticket zoning problem and governors’ division to focus their efforts on rebuilding and strengthening the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The Rivers state Governor stated this on Monday when he paid a courtesy call on the Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri at the Government House, Yenagoa.
“I’ve come to let him know that everybody as PDP members must put ourselves together to build the party. Without the party nobody can be a presidential candidate. There must be a party. So, there is the need for everybody to work together, make the party to be united before we talk about who will be presidential candidate,” he said.
Governor Wike stated that Nigerians are eagerly awaiting the PDP to rescue the country from the bad governance that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has imposed.
“We cannot afford to miss this opportunity that Nigerians are giving back to PDP to takeover the government in 2023. Everybody must work together as a party. And as governors, we must work together. If we didn’t work together we won’t have had the best convention we have ever had as a party,” Wike said.
Governor Wike emphasized that if the party’s governors and members do not come together, nominating an acceptable presidential candidate will be impossible.
According to him, the PDP must take advantage of the APC’s growing problem to construct a more formidable party capable of unseating the APC-led federal government.
Governor Wike promised that the antics of those who are stoking the embers of dissension in an attempt to undercut the PDP’s ambition to win the presidency in 2023 will not distract PDP governors.
“We as governors will be united. Nobody can divide the governors because we are determined to work together to make sure PDP produces the next president in 2023,” he said.
