Wike unveils preferred candidate

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the presidential candidate he and his political allies would support is someone adjudged to have integrity, who keeps his word and would not renege on any agreement brokered.

He stated this at Rumuji-Odegwe town where the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) held a rally to flag-off its campaign in Emohua Local Government Area, yesterday.

He enjoined some leaders of the state like Sergeant Awuse, who declared that party stalwarts in the state were anxiously awaiting directive on the presidential election, to continue to exercise patience while the decision on preferred presidential candidate would be concluded soon.

“Chief Awuse has said, ‘we are tired of waiting.’ Indeed, we are tired of waiting. But don’t worry. You’ve been patient. Your being patient will not be taken for granted. The bell will soon ring. When you hear the bell, listen to where the bell is coming from and go and do what you have been told to do.

“I can assure you all these buccaneers, all these vampires, we will teach them a lesson. All those who said Rivers State is not important, we’ll tell them that Rivers State is important. If you play with us, we’ll play with you. If they play with us, we’ll play with them. Enough is enough.

“So, let me apologise and plead with Ohna, Nne-New-Eli Emohua Local Government, it is almost time, endure. Very soon you’ll hear and I can assure them, no going back.”

The governor said he has been waiting patiently for those who threatened to expel him from the PDP to act out their threat. He said those issuing such a threat were not oblivious that PDP was already polarised, and taking such action against him and his allies would lead to the extinction of the party.

The governor said the state has what it takes to withstand those he described as buccaneers and vampires already in the stock-in-trade of selling their conscience for pot of pottage.
