The governor of Rivers State, Nyesome Wike, has declared his intention to run for 2023 Presidency in a visit to Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, on Sunday.
There have been speculations about his intention to run for presidency in a long while, but that has now been laid to rest, as he has finally thrown his hat into the ring, joining Abubakar Atiku and Peter Obi who have so far also declared their intentions to run.
While speaking at the Benue state government house in Markurdi on Sunday, Gov Wike stated that he was making his intention to contest for presidency known for the first time in Benue.
The River governor stated that he has the capacity to bring about good governance, and thus urged the people of the nation to give him the mandate to “face this evil government.

Wike noted that he is prepared to remove APC government from power through ballots, noting he is the only one that can stop the ruling party because God is with him.
In addition, Wike queried the PDP’s founding fathers who at the time of need abandoned the party, but now still want to be recognized, saying they had sold their shares as founding fathers and can no more retain the position.
In his word: “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 personally. I have never relented.
“In 2015, those who ran away made us loose 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. Mention the private business that survive. Is it banks that your father had? Everybody is an employer of labour. Even in my house I have 50 people who feast from me.
Wike added that the nation could not be deceived again, and that he can raise his shoulders high anywhere that he has greatly performed as the governor of Rivers state.
Wike concluded that if given the opportunity to rule the nation, his first priority will be security.
