PDP Govs Betrayed Our Request For Southern President – Wike


Mar 15, 2023 ,

The governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike, claimed that some People Democratic Party, PDP, governors nearly prevented southerners from being the next president of Nigeria.

Wike revealed that he ran in the PDP presidential primaries last year because he was adamant that Buhari’s successor should come from the south.

The Governor spoke during the interactive town hall meeting for the Rivers State student community that was held at the Obi Wali International Conference Center in Port Harcourt.

He gave an explanation of why while the PDP Governors acted in opposition to the resolutions made by the southern governors at Asaba, Lagos, and Enugu.

“We agreed in Southern Nigeria, all of us as governors, we agreed, we said it doesn’t matter the party you belong to, whether you are in no party, whether you are in a party, whether you are in any organisation, power must come to the south. But we in PDP betrayed ourselves.”

Wike said he had no problem with anybody, who voted for any of the two major presidential candidates from the south in the just-concluded election.

“What matters most is that presidential power will be shifting from the north to the south of Nigeria at the end of President Buhari’s tenure”, he said

Wike used the interactive session to acquaint the students with his numerous developmental achievements.

He urged them to support the PDP governorship candidate, Sir Siminialayi Fubara on Saturday’s election to consolidate on the gains of his administration.
