- Governor Nyesom Wike has faulted the governance under the APC-led administration
- The politician raised doubt about the party’s ability to retain power at the federal level in 2023
- Wike has questioned the commitment of the APC in fighting corruption
The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will suffer a devastating loss in the coming 2023 general elections.
The governor in a statement on Thursday, February 4, said Nigerians will vote the APC out of power because of its inability to tackle insurgency, banditry, and corruption, The Nation reported.
Wike made the statement shortly after inspecting the Greater Interchange and Underpass being constructed by Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri in Yola.
‘’Are Nigerians happy? The answer is no. If Nigerians are not happy, what is the expected result that you intend to get? Obviously, Nigerians would want APC government not to govern them in 2023.”
“I believe that Nigerians now know that they have made a mistake and they want to correct the mistake by voting for PDP and no longer APC."
According to PM News, Wike alleged that Transparency International’s corruption index report has shown that the APC administration has been paying lip service to the fight of corruption.
He said Nigeria has never witnessed division and insecurity like the way it has been under APC-led administration.
Meanwhile, amid rumour of his alleged presidential ambition in 2023, Wike has declared that he has no intention to vie for the presidency during the next general elections.
PM News reports that in an interview with Channels TV in Port Harcourt, Wike said his political detractors were behind the recent circulation of his posters in Abuja, which fulled rumours that he is gunning for the highest office in the land.
Legit.ng gathered that the governor said though it is his constitutional right to aspire for the office of the president, his present interest is the delivery of dividends of democracy to Rivers people.
