Wike knocks Atiku, Saraki, Tambuwal, cautions PDP delegates against ‘run-away’ aspirants  

Governor Nyesom Wike of River State and presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned delegates against giving the ticket of the party to aspirants that would run away to another political party.

He boasted that since 1998, he has been with PDP and has no reasons to defect to another party, noting that he is a man that has the capacity to face the opposition parties and win the 2023 election.

According to him, “The PDP must be careful not to give tickets to people that will at the heat of election run away to another party. I am the one man who can face the ruling party and win the election no matter their antics.”

Wike’s major contesters to PDP ticket include former vice president, Atiku Abubakar; former Senate president, Bukola Saraki; Sokoto State governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal. All of them have at one time or the other left the party to another, some of them more than once.

Some PDP member referred to their actions as treachery, and blamed them for the party’s misfortune in 2015.

Even President Buhari recently hit at the party for parading people he called untrustworthy.

Wike advised members of PDP to work together as an indivisible entity to achieve the feat of reclaiming the country for the sake of Nigerians.

He said this on Wednesday in Lokoja, Kogi State during his visit to delegates for the presidential primaries, saying he was in the state to seek the support of Kogi PDP delegates during the primary election of the party coming up on May 28 and 29.

He said: “I joined the race to pick the ticket and eventually win the presidential election to salvage the nation from its present precarious situations, where insecurity, economic doldrums and suffering have become the order of the day.

“The country today needs a capable hand with the political will to take over the leadership of the country, and I have what it takes to win the general election if given the ticket of the party.”

Former governor of the state, Ibrahim Idris commended Wike for his patience, perseverance and efforts at unifying the party, noting that his records in project execution have no rivals in the country.

He said that the Kogi Chapter of PDP has resolved to support him during the presidential primaries of the party, assuring him of 100 per cent support to pick the ticket of the party.
