Wike reveals candidates Rivers will vote for in 2023 Elections


Governor Nyesom Wike has disclosed that the 2023 general elections in Rivers State will feature a fight-to-finish contest in which the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would win it all at the end of the day.

Speaking at the local government campaign flag-off rally of the State’s PDP in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area (ONELGA) on Monday, he said the people of Rivers would not vote for candidates that hate the State.

According to him, “That is how you know those who hate Rivers State, that is how you know those who love us. If you hate Rivers State, we will not give you our vote.

“We will only give our vote to those who love Rivers State. You have to listen to your leaders through the DG (director general) of the campaign.

“They will come back to you, sit you down and tell you where we are heading to. It is a fight to finish. Do not be afraid. We are going to win at the end of the day. You know that we have always won. We will continue to win.”

“We have never failed in anything we have told you. Success has always been with us. God has been with us. This time is not going to be different. God will continue to lead us,” he added.

Wike said PDP had lorded it over the opposition in previous elections in Rivers State governor and the forthcoming elections won’t present a different outcome.

The Governor explained to the people that the traditional authority, the Oba, in Omoku Town, “has done the traditional thing by blessing us and telling us, go to the field, my people are there, they will be with you, they will stay with you and we have seen it today.”

He implored the people to repeat the level of support that they gave to the PDP in previous years in order to consolidate what his administration has already accomplished.
