The executive governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Wike, says he has the capacity to win the 2023 presidential poll for the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

Wike made the declaration during a consultative meeting with party members of the Benue chapter of the PDP at the Government House in Makurdi on Sunday.

The governor, who informed the stakeholders about his intention to contest for the presidency, asked for Benue PDP votes in the upcoming national delegates convention of the party, even as he re-echoed on zoning.

“To remove APC from power, I’m the person who can tell them enough is enough. We must take this power and I’m ready to take it for PDP. God is with us that’s why APC keeps failing everyday.

“I’m declaring it (presidential ambition) for the first time in Benue. I’m going to run for election,” Wike said.

He also urged party members not to sell their votes, but give it to him, adding that some of the PDP presidential aspirants were only after the power for personal aggrandizement.

Wike also accused individuals who defected from the party and came back to seek power of being the reason the party was defeated in 2015 election.

He further noted that those founding fathers who ran away from the party and still wanted to be recognised have lost their shares.

He said, “By the time you ran away, you sold your share as a founding father so you can no longer retain your position of founding fathers.

“I stood for this party. I work for this party since 1998. I have nowhere to run to and that’s why anything that happens to this party I take it personally. I have never relented.
“In 2015, those who ran away made us lose the election. Today, they are crying but some of us stood and said PDP will not die.

“Some people want to use Nigeria to buy back their personal business. They talk about private sector – let them mention the private business that had survived. Is it banks that your father had? Everybody is an employer of labour even in my house I have 50 people who feed from me. They should stop deceiving us.

“I have performed as a governor and can carry my shoulders high anywhere. I have the capacity to face this evil government, give me the mandate. I will speak the truth to power and nothing but the truth. I have the capacity to move this country forward.”
