The governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu has called on the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to consider Nyesom Wike for his presidential ambition.
Despite urging the leadership to consider Nyesom Wike’s candidature he praised Rivers Governor Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the great candidate for the PDP in the 2023 Presidential race.
Okezie Ikpeazu made this comment while speaking at a meeting Wike and the party’s National Working Committee on Tuesday 19th April, 2022.
Competence and acceptability, according to Governor Ikpeazu, are the two major conditions for the PDP to seize power from the current APC in 2023.
Governor Wike, he believes, has met those standards and has shown commitment to the party, so he should be permitted to fly the party’s flag.
Governor Wike, who was also accompanied by the former Governor of Gombe State, Hassan Dankwambo, asked the party not to be sentimental in their candidate selection process.
