Wike, Makarfi declare conditions for PDP’s victory in 2023


Abuja – Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Monday, declared that Nigeria is bleeding, calling on the Peoples Democratic Party to unite and rescue the country from the ruling All Progressives Congress in 2023.

Wike, who spoke in Kaduna while on a visit to former governor of the state, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, insisted that Nigerians are now tired and are waiting for the PDP to take over power.

The governor said he was not on political trip to the state but to see his leader (Makarfi) who had been out of the country on health grounds.

Wike called on party members to be united ahead of the battle to wrest power from the ruling party in 2023, saying that Nigerians won’t forgive the PDP if it failed to rescue the country.

The governor said, “I want to urge all of you, in every family, there are bound to be problems, put yourselves together.

“Nigeria is bleeding and if we are not united, Nigeria will not forgive us because every Nigerian is hoping that the PDP must come and stop this bleeding.

“The issue at stake now is not who wants to run for presidency or where to zone presidency. The issue now is that all party members must be united because, if you like, zone president to the West, if you are not united, you cannot achieve anything.

“The most important thing now is the unity of the party; forgive anybody who may have gone astray, bring back everybody and use you leadership qualities to forgive.”

Wike assured stakeholders of his support whenever it is needed to move the party forward as the PDP is the only party in the country which has hope adding, “the All Progressive Congress has finished Nigeria, they no longer have new ideas and if they had ideas, they did not use it.”

In his response, Makarfi agreed with the governor that Nigerians would be disappointed with the PDP if it failed to rescue the country in 2023.

The former governor said, “I absolutely believe that with the same energy and perseverance we can do it again. If there is no party, what is the point of your ticket? Therefore, we have to build the party first, we have to be united and when a consensus is decided, we should all have one voice.

“I agree with you that we will be disappointing Nigerians if we do not come together and take over power to recover Nigeria for Nigerians.”
