2023 presidency: I’m close to deciding who to support — Wike
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has again said talks with his political allies on the presidential candidate to support the February 25 election will soon be concluded.
Wike spoke at St. Martin’s Anglican Church, Omagwa Town, the venue of the local government campaign flag-off rally of the Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ikwerre Local Government Area on today.
The governor noted that the beauty of the forthcoming election is that it will leave no room for any form of electoral manipulation and intimidation from security personnel.
Emboldening the people to be committed to the polls, Wike told the campaign crowd, “This time, no army will do anything. No Fakorode will do any thing. No police will do anything.
“Now, it is one man, one vote. All the votes must be in one basket from the governorship to the House of Assembly. The other one we are concluding. When we conclude, you will be told.
“Nobody should intimidate you. Nobody should tell you any story. We are free-born in this country. We are not second-class citizens. Nobody can tell us anything.
“I dare them. Let anybody do any funny thing, We’ll tell them we are from Rivers State.
“As we finish from here now, you’ll go home and start working before the appropriate time when we will ring the bell. When you hear the bell ringing, know that the decision has been taken.”
