Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, has claimed that winning any of the three states of Lagos, Kano, or Rivers is a requirement for becoming president of Nigeria.
This was said by him on Friday in Port Harcourt while answering questions from the media.
“Buhari won the states of Lagos and Kano in 2015. Additionally, in 2019, PDP won Rivers State, while Buhari won Lagos and Kano states.
Atiku currently lacks Lagos and Kano states, and he recently declared that he is not in need of Rivers State. How can he triumph?
Recent PDP conflicts have been related to the party chairmanship, with Wike’s camp calling for Iyorchia Ayu, the party chairman, to step down.
Meanwhile the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike convened an emergency meeting for PDP Members in Rivers state.
He stated that he would stick to the party but would go head on with his current demand of Ayu’s Resignation.
He stated that as Nigeria needs Restructuring so does the Peoples Democratic party need Restructuring.
And if they can’t restructure the party to change it from the narrative of a Northern party to a party that cater for all tribes and region then they won’t win in the forth coming elections.
Recall that the Rivers Governor, Wike and his camp pulled out of Atiku’s Campaign Council and have promised to stay put until things change in the party.
