Governor Nyesom Wike says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers state will make known soon its choice for the upcoming 2023 presidential election.
The governor made this known on Tuesday during the commissioning of the Rukpokwu-Igwuruta Link Road in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of the state.
The Governor urged the people of the state to vote in the candidates of the PDP for the governorship, National Assembly and state House of Assembly seats.
He, however, told the people that the decision on the candidate the state will support for February 25, 2023, presidential election will be made known after deliberations.
“Will you vote our governor? Will you vote for our Senatorial candidate? Will you vote for House of Representatives candidates? Will you vote House of Assembly candidate?” Wike asked a large number of supporters who chanted “Yes”.
“Then the other one, I will come and tell you where you will vote. All I will tell you, is don’t worry, calm down, these ones that I mentioned, make sure you vote them. Very soon, we will meet and take a decision on where we are going,” he added.
Wike, a PDP governor, not on good terms with his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, had promised logistics support for the campaigns of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi; and his New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) counterpart, Rabiu Kwankwaso who recently commissioned projects in Rivers.
