Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said the hope of Nigerians rests on the shoulders of the main opposition party, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Njenje Media News reports that Governor Wike, who many refers to in many quarters as the major financier of the PDP made the statement during the commissioning of the Aker Base road in Rivers State.
In his words;
“PDP is a party Nigerians want,”. “No matter all the intimidation, it will not work. We are men of character. We are people who stand by what they say. Not for pecuniary interest.
“If I was that kind of Governor . . . I know how many times people have tried to woo us. We say no, we cannot be wooed. We are here, we are here. We started with PDP, we will end up with PDP. We have no other political party to join. Because the fate of this country, the hope of Nigeria solely depends on our party.
“When we talk about our party, it is not for selfish interest. But because we want our party to continue to give Nigerians that hope that Nigerians are looking for. So when there is any mistake, we shout out. So that Nigerians won’t lose faith because everybody is hoping that by 2023 PDP will take over the reins of power. I am not talking about this state.”
