Governor Nyesom Wike has urged Rivers State residents to vote for his preferred presidential candidate in order to salvage his political career.
Wike, who made the plea on Saturday during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) last campaign event in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, reaffirmed that he has asked party leaders in the state to inform the people about the presidential candidate to vote for.
Though Governor Wike did not name his favored presidential candidate, he stated that the battle for equity, fairness, and justice will guide the people in deciding who to vote for as president.
“We have given the leaders instructions ward by ward. The leaders of our local government will inform you of our decisions.
The Integrity Group leader commended the governors elected under the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC), for rotating power to the South.
“We are going to vote for the unity of Nigeria. We are going to vote for equity fairness and justice. And that is why, I salute the APC governors who came out to say look, for this country to be united, for this country to move together as a country, as one united country, there is need for power to shift.
“They were not greedy; they know that Nigeria is such a country that requires unity. Those who are greedy about power, you can get power and you will not have peace”.
