Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, cannot emerge the president of Nigeria in the 2023 election without winning any of Lagos, Kano and Rivers states.
Governor Wike, who fielded questions in a media chat with some journalists in Port Harcourt, the state capital today, September 23, said: “in 2015, Buhari won Lagos and Kano states. Also in 2019, Buhari won Lagos and Kano states, and PDP won Rivers State.
“Presently, Atiku does not have Lagos and Kano states, and now he said he doesn’t need Rivers State. How can he win?”
In recent times, the PDP has been experiencing some crises over the party’s chairmanship, with some groups demanding the resignation of Iyorchia Ayu, the party chairman.
