Governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike has stated emphatically that he’ll still work with the people’s democratic party PDP at the 2023 general elections
At a media parley on national politics held in port Harcourt this morning, the governor claimed he has no issues with the party but with the decision the party stakeholders are making.
Wike is dissatisfied with the presidential candidate of the party and the national chairman of the party coming from the same zone.
“If we have constitutionally zoned the presidency to the north then it will be wrong for the national chairman to also come from that same zone.’
The Rivers state governor explained that all he is fighting for is justice and equity.
Wike has no plans to leave the PDP, but also has no plan to work for PDP if Iyorcha Ayu remains the party chairman.
Wike, also disclosed that he was offered a senatorial ticket of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar, did not fulfill his promises.
“I rejected the offer due to my loyalty to PDP and my commitment to ensuring that we return to power during the 2023 election in the country.
According to the governor, he contested the presidential primaries because he wanted to be the presidential candidate and that is why he didn’t buy a senatorial form.
