The Governor of Rivers State and presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Nyesom Wike has said the contest for the 2023 party’s ticket is payback time for those who have been faithful and consistent with the party.
Wike dismissed moves to produce a consensus presidential candidate for the party.
The Rivers State Governor who stated this while addressing the National Working Committee (NWC), of the party, Tuesday, cautioned the party leadership not to give the party’s presidential ticket to those who failed to win their states for the PDP in previous elections.
He also reminded the party NWC that they removed former PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus led NWC to install the incumbent Dr Iyorchia Ayu led NWC.
He was accompanied by PDP chieftains including Abia State governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, former governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo, erstwhile governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose and ex-Minister of Justice, Bello Adoke, among others.
