2023: I have all it takes to oust APC – Wike
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says it is the turn of the southern part of Nigeria to produce the president.
Governor Wike who stated this in Abeokuta the Ogun State capital noted that he has all it takes to wrestle power from the All Progressive Congress, APC-led government by 2023.
The governor was speaking at the official declaration by a former member of the House of Representatives, Chief Oladipupo Adebutu to contest for the Ogun State governorship seat.
Governor Wike who described Chief Adebutu as an highly resourceful politician in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, called for more support for him to lead the state in 2023.
He noted that the APC has failed the country with hunger and insecurity biting hard in all parts of the country.
Also speaking, former governor of Ekiti State, Dr Ayodele Fayose described Chief Adebutu as a dependable leader who has all it takes to take Ogun State to higher heights.
Dr Fayose advised the party members as well as the residents of the state to see to the success of his governorship ambition in 2023.
The former Ekiti State governor equally demanded that the PDP’s presidential candidate must come from the south, noting that President Buhari who represents the north will be completing his tenure of eight years by next year and that it is best to have the next president from the south.
Speaking during the occasion, Chief Oladipupo Adebutu disclosed that his desire to take over the reins of leadership from the All Progressives Congress-led government in the state was due to the ruling party’s bad governance and poor performance in every area.
The Ogun State Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Sukurullahi Ogundele, explained that the party has heard the cry of the residents of the state owing to bad governance of the APC-led government stating that Chief Adebutu had taken up the challenge to liberate the people by 2023.
