The Governor of Rivers State and presidential aspirant, Nyesom Wike has informed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) what would happen if they should lose him.
The governor stated that the party risk losing the 2023 election if he is not chosen as its presidential candidate.
He stated further that he has the highest chance of winning the 2023 presidential election.
The governor said this while addressing the PDP National Working Committee (NWC), Tuesday.
He also warned that those who could not win their states for PDP in past elections should not be trusted with the upcoming presidential election.
He said: “So I believe am a thorough party person. And should be encouraged to lead the party. It’s very, very important. I know the modus operandi of APC, I can withstand the APC, I can withstand the Federal Government, just give me the ticket.”
On consensus Presidential candidate, Wike queried that “when we did our convention in 2018 about 10 people contested. There was no consensus. Why in 2019, why are they talking about consensus?
“I don’t believe in these people going around on consensus. I told them that their consensus move is shine shine bobo, the more you look, the less you see. I say am not going to buy it. It will not work and am not a party to it.
“I believe in consensus, but base on equity, justice and fairness. But not consensus by those who have conspired, they think they can bring me in, but nobody can bring me into it.
“I will also advise, that this time we are in, is a litigation period. There is no election where you don’t see litigation, there is none. It will come. So that we don’t run into problems again, you should try as much as you can if you can not vacate such an order, try as much as you can to assign people and settle it. There is no issue that can not be resolved if you are open and transparent.
“The household name now is Wike, so don’t make mistake and lose Wike. Because if you lose Wike, you have lost the election. It is not our prayer that we should lose the election.
“So it is important you do the campaign for me, that was how I did it for you too. When I was fighting the former NWC, some of you were supporting them. Now all of you are here.
“One good turn deserves another. So you people should also payback. Because you didn’t go to campaign, but now am campaigning to you. So payback. But please do us the favor to conduct a free and fair election, that will be an advantage for us to win in 2023”.
