“It is important for us as a Party to Unite because Nigerians are waiting for PDP,”- Gov Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, says “It is important for us as a party to unite because Nigerians are waiting for PDP,”.

Governor Wike stressed that for the PDP to actualize such an objective, all governors of the main opposition party must be united.

The governor stated this on Tuesday during a courtesy visit to the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, at the Government House in Ibadan.

“It is important for us as a party to unite because Nigerians are waiting for PDP,” he was quoted in a statement by his spokesman, Kelvin Ebiri. “We cannot afford to lose this opportunity, and the key for that is that the governors must be united and must support the party.

“It does not matter who will be the presidential candidate. If the party is united, the governors are united, I can tell you that victory will be ours.”

The governor said millions of Nigerians were languishing in abject poverty due to the harsh socio-economic policies and they were desperately looking up to the PDP to emancipate them.

“We must sit down as a party and take the best decision that will make Nigerians be happy, that will make us win the election. Anything we are doing that will not make us win the election, then there is no basis for it because we still want Nigerians to suffer.

“Nigerians cannot continue to suffer. They have suffered enough in the hands of APC and God will not forgive PDP if we don’t rescue Nigeria,” he stated.
