Rivers State Governor and a presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party,  Nyesom Wike, has said he is the only one that can wrest power from the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Addressing delegates in Lokoja on Wednesday May 4, Wike said the ruling APC has plunged the country into a deep hole to the extent that only a president with great character and political strength will harness all available human resources with close supervision to pull the country out.

“This country has never been this divided with so many insecurities even in Mr. President’s home state. Nigeria, therefore, needs someone who can bail her out, and I am putting myself forward to rescue her.

“This election is what every Nigerian must face frontally.

“We need the best because no one can do it alone; the next president must know how to harness all available human resources for optimal performance.

Wike said his party had done so much for him as a person, and he would do everything within his power to repay the party members by giving them good governance.

“I owe PDP a lot; even if I don’t win the ticket, I will remain PDP Wike faults Buhari's anti-corruption fight, questions EFCC, ICPC's relevance2023: Why I may agree with PDP consensus arrangement - Wike Let me go and take power from APC. What should be on the lips of every delegate now should be Wike!” he said.

He asked those not delegates to monitor delegates to deliver him for the party.

“We need a strong leader who takes action when necessary. We need a leader with character who knows a particular thing and stands by it.

“Give your vote to someone with energy who will work for you. Vote for me and go to bed; I will work for you,” he added.
