Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has urged residents of the states to vote for all the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, in the 2023 general elections, but they should await his instruction on the choice of the presidential candidate, while subtly rejecting the PDP's Atiku Abubakar.
Wike during the commissioning of the Rukpoku-Rumuapu-Izo-Ogbodo-Ogwuruta roads in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday told the residents to vote for the PDP Gubernatorial candidate, House of Representatives, senatorial and the House of Assembly candidates.
He also requested them to wait until he revealed where they would be casting their vote for the presidential election.
Recall that Wike and the other four governors of the PDP had fallen out with the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku over the retention of Iyorchia Ayu as the National Chairman.
“You will vote for the party that has worked for you.
“You know those you will vote for – vote for our Gubernatorial candidate, vote for our House of Representatives, vote for our senatorial candidate, vote for our House of assembly candidates.
“Those we have mentioned now, make sure you vote for them. For the other one (presidential election), we will meet at our houses very soon and decide where we are going.”
