Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has described the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the hope and the future of Nigeria.
Wike, one of the most visible and formidable leaders of the party said this on Thursday in Port-Harcourt during the commissioning of the reconstructed Aker base road in the state capital.
According to him, nothing would ever made him contemplate the idea of dumping the party, “We started with the PDP, we will end up with the PDP”, he said.
“PDP is a party Nigerians want,” Wike said. “No matter all the intimidation, it will not work. We are men of character. We are people who stand by what they say. Not for pecuniary interest.
“If I was that kind of Governor . . . I know how many times people have tried to woo us. We say no, we cannot be wooed. We are here, we are here. We started with PDP, we will end up with PDP. We have no other political party to join. Because of the fate of this country, the hope of Nigeria solely depends on our party.
“When we talk about our party, it is not for selfish interest. But because we want our party to continue to give Nigerians that hope that Nigerians are looking for. So when there is any mistake, we shout out. So that Nigerians won’t lose faith because everybody is hoping that by 2023 PDP will take over the reins of power. I am not talking about this state, he said.”
