2023: You will be shocked – Wike reveals what could cause PDP defeat

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has told the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, that he will suffer a shock if he does not do the right thing ahead of the 2023 presidential election


Wike was reacting to a question on what will become of the largest opposition party if the presidential election holds today.

The Rivers State governor, who was one of the presidential aspirants at the PDP party’s convention earlier this year, spoke to select television stations on Friday mainly on the crisis rocking the party.

Wike and his camp, which includes some governors and party leaders from the South, feel cheated out of the presidential nomination and recently withdrew from Atiku’s presidential campaign.

They are calling for the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, as the only way to regain support for the party, stressing that it is unjustifiable for the party chairman and the presidential candidate to be from the same region.

While the Atiku camp is resisting the call, saying the party’s constitution must be properly followed, Wike said holding the election now could cost them victory and the support of Nigerians.

“If we take advantage of the support of Nigerians for us. And that advantage is to do the right thing [we will win] if the election is held tomorrow on Saturday.

“What Nigerians are saying is that this political party [APC] that promised us heaven and earth, we are not seeing it.

“The country has never been as polarised as it is now. And instead of capitalising on that by doing the right thing so that you continue to enjoy the support and win the election… if the election is held tomorrow (Saturday) and they allow themselves to remain like that, Nigerians cannot trust us.

“That is why we are taking it upon ourselves not to let this opportunity pass. If they squander this opportunity Nigerians have given us, they will pay dearly for it… if we are there to say ‘APC has not done well’, we will be in for a shock,” he said.
