Wike, Diri Confident Of PDP Presidential Victory

Douye Diri and Nyesom Wike, the governors of Bayelsa and Rivers states, indicated on Monday that the Peoples Democratic Party is better positioned to win the presidency in 2023.

Both governors, speaking at the Government House in Yenagoa when Wike paid a visit to Diri, urged for unity between the two states.

Diri said that only the PDP, which has been repositioned to win the presidency in next year’s general election, can save Nigeria from its current insecurity and economic challenges.

In a statement released on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, the governor characterized the presidency as a holy position, stating that the PDP was the only party with the pedigree to provide hope and direction to Nigerians.

“The presidency is one sacred office and we must do everything to protect it and ensure that our party clinches victory at the 2023 general polls.

“The number one thing for our party is our unity. Second is, who becomes president? We have a capable national chairman that can steer us back to power come 2023,” Diri reportedly said.

He praised Wike for his leadership and purposeful government but added that the Niger Delta’s states needed to work together more to address their shared difficulties, notably in the areas of pollution and underdevelopment.

The Bayelsa governor emphasized the importance of additional discussions with his Rivers counterpart in order to enhance their unity.

Wike was also praised by Diri for his involvement in the PDP’s repositioning, characterizing him as a “dedicated party guy.”

Wike, for one, expressed optimism that the PDP will provide Nigeria’s next president.

Nigerians are waiting for the party to save them from the country’s current crisis, he said, adding that the party’s leaders and members cannot afford to lose this chance.

Wike emphasized the need for unity of purpose between Bayelsa and Rivers, as well as the whole PDP, stating that success would be elusive without it.

The Rivers governor praised his Bayelsa counterpart’s development efforts and party dedication and asked the people of the state to continue to support him.

Wike was joined on the trip by a high-powered group that included Celestine Omehia, a former Rivers governor, Austin Opara and Chibudom Nwuche, both former Deputy Speakers of the House of Representatives, and Abiye Sekibo, a former Minister of Transport.
