Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has written off the Buhari administration, alleging that Nigeria has become a country where hunger is not addressed, insecurity is allowed to fester, and marauding bandits are killing citizens without restriction.
Wike who is battling for the 2023 presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) argues that if there is a proper Commander-in-Chief, bandits and insurgent groups will not be allowed to drag the country down to the level of unrestrained killings of innocent Nigerians.
A statement from the Government House, Port Harcourt, said Wike was decrying the Nigerian situation when he met with PDP delegates in Ekiti State this Monday to solicit votes as he seeks to become the presidential flag bearer of the party.
“A proper Commander-in-Chief will never allow this country to go down like this. What am I doing with service chiefs. Their business is to protect Nigeria and Nigerians.
“Look at our country, everyday, the only project we get is people have died. The only project Nigeria continues to get is that 55 people have been killed in Zamfara yesterday.
He is maintaining that President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) administration has failed in its primary responsibility to protect life and property, hence, has no business being in governance.
“First in the oath of office is the protection of life and property. Any government that cannot protect life and property has no business to be governance and APC has no business to be governance.”
While emphasizing that what is happening in Nigeria is affecting everybody including Moslems, Christians, Northerners and Southerners alike, the governor said never had Nigerians been so divided as seen under President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
Wike described his quest to rescue Nigeria and ensure safety of life and property under a proper Commander-in-Chief, as a mission to right the wrongs and give Nigerians back their country.
“Nobody can say what will happens in the next two minutes. As you’re going home now, you don’t know what will happen. Nigeria has come to that stage.
“Look at the hunger. Look at the poverty. This country requires a leader now that can confront the issues of insecurity.
“This country requires a leader that is very courageous. This country requires a leader that is fearless and I am that leader.
Governor Wike reiterated his resolve to form a government of national unity if he secures the presidential ticket of the PDP, contests the 2023 presidential election and wins resoundingly.
Speaking further, Governor Wike urged the delegates to consider him as the most competent, courageous and fearless leader to vote for during the party’s primary on the 28th and 29th May 2022.
Governor Wike enjoined the PDP family in Ekiti State to continue to work in unity and assured them of his and Oyo State governor’s support at the next gubernatorial election in that State.
Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State said the South-West geopolitical zone will vote as a bloc during this month’s PDP national convention.
“The South-West zone, we will go in one direction. South-West zone will determine who is going to get the ticket of PDP. So, the delegates will have the heavy load of Abuja and by the grace of God we will deliver.”
Governor Makinde said the era when the South-West was regarded as untrustworthy is over. He stressed that they will play a central role during the presidential primary and will also get a central benefit when Governor Wike wins the 2023 presidential election.
Similarly, former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, noted that the south-west has suffered gross negligence under the APC administration.
“We are going to go to this convention united. Nobody in the south-west particularly in Ekiti will start going to one aspirant in the night.”
Former Gombe State Governor, Dr. Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, said having worked with four Nigerian presidents, he is convinced that Governor Wike is the only aspirant with the resolve to tackle insecurity and other issues besetting the Nigerian state.
“He is a man that is a complete party man, man that has worked for this party, stood for this party when we had problem and never ran away.”
