Rivers state Governor Nyeson Wike has called on members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to unite and take over power in 2023 saying the country is bleeding and needed to be rescued.
Governor Wike, who was in Kaduna on a visit to former Governor Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi, said going by election results in recent times, where the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had lost many units at the grassroots levels, Nigerians were now tired and were waiting for the PDP to take over power to restore the lost glory of the country.
Governor Wike told the crowd that besieged Makarfi’s residence that, “the PDP is the only party in Nigeria that has hope. I didn’t come here to tell you I want to run for President. There must be a party first of all for you to run for President. Our own is to make sure that our party is intact. Tomorrow I am going to Plateau to tell Useni, to tell Jang that we cannot continue the way we are going.”
“This APC has finished Nigeria, let nobody tell you another story. There is nothing they can tell us now. They have no idea. If they had any idea, they didn’t use it. If APC had promises for six years, is it one and a half years they are going to fulfill it?”
