Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has declared his intention to run for the 2023 presidential election.
Wike made the disclosure on Sunday during his visit to the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom at the Government House in Makurdi.
Wike in his declaration said he is the best man to take over power from the ruling All Progressives Congress.
He said, “To remove APC from power, I’m the person who can tell them enough is enough. We must take this power and I’m ready to take it for PDP.
“God is with us that’s why APC keeps failing every day.”
Urging stakeholders to give him their mandates and not sell their votes, Wike assured that he has the capacity to, “face this evil government.”
He promised that if elected, security would be his topmost priority and also queried those founding fathers that ran away from the People’s Democratic Party and still want to be recognised.
Wike stressed that he takes issues of the party personal because he has nowhere to run to.
He said, “By the time you ran away, you sold your share as a founding father so you can no longer retain your position of founding fathers.
“I stood for this party. I work for this party since 1998. I have nowhere to run to and that’s why anything that happens to this party I take personally. I have never relented.”
