The governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike has told Nigerians to be ready for a shocker as the south readies to take its stand on the 2023 presidency.
Wike issued the notice at the weekend in Port Harcourt at a grand reception organised in his honour by the people of Kalabari ethnic nationality in Asari Toru local government area.
The governor was honoured with a traditional title of Se- Ibidokubo of Kalabari land (meaning he who does good things for Kalabari people) and was performed by the Amayanabo of Abonnema, King Gboko Desreal Bob-manuel.
Media aide to the governor, Mr. Kelvin Ebiri, said in a statement that Wike also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not give its presidential ticket to any candidate who would serve the interest of the wealthy few in Nigeria only.
The statement also quoted the governor as saying the some desperate politicians who would not serve the interest of the many, rather the interest of the wealthy few were already scheming to be candidates.
“The day the south will speak, Nigeria will shake. We believe in the unity of this country, but nobody can threaten us; nobody should threaten us. We believe in the unity of Nigeria and the unity of Nigeria must continue,” he said.
