THE Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike on Monday disclosed that he will be announcing the presidential candidate of his choice ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Governor Wike made this known during the flagging-off project to deliver internal roads for Eneka town, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Rivers State.
He noted that he already knows the candidate(s) who has good thoughts for country and that he would sensitise the electorate to vote them in during the election.
In his words, Governor Wike said: “Some other people are busy, putting selves together on how they will take over leadership in Nigeria to loot the remaining ones this other people have already kept. I’m privileged to know and at the appropriate time I’ll tell you who these people are.”
While drawing reference to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the slogan of presidential candidates which hinges on ‘rescue Nigeria’, Wike added “Forget about all these people running around saying they want to rescue or save you (Nigeria). Just watch to see what is going to happen next.
“All of us should be calm concerning what is happening in PDP. In fact, nothing has happened yet. But by the grace of God, something will happen.”
He added: “Look at us concentrating in giving our people good governance. What is good governance? Good governance is making the people to be happy.“Good governance is providing infrastructure for the people. Good governance is not about party.
Providing good governance is about leadership. We are here everyday flagging off projects, commissioning projects even though our tenure is coming to an end. “Now that I have come to Eneka to provide this basic infrastructure, I can come back to Eneka and ask you to follow me, let us go there or let us stay here. Do they have what it takes to come and talk to you? Can they come and talk to you?
“It is somebody that hears from you that you have also hear from. This one you’ve not provided anything for my people, you’ve not asked them what they want, then you want to tell them where to vote.“
“So, it is us that will come and meet you and say see where you’ll vote. And I know based on our relationship, since we have not deceived you, we have not told you lies, you will follow us at the appropriate time.”
