The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has told Senate President Bukola Saraki, that Nigerians now know why President Muhammadu Buhari wanted to be President in 2015.
Wike said this while vowing that no desperate person will fly the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, flag in the presidential election.
The Governor said this when the campaign organization of the Senate President paid him a visit at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Friday.
Senate President and his entourage were in Port Harcourt to seek support of the PDP delegates from Rivers State ahead of the party’s primaries in October.
Wike said, “No desperate person, by the Grace of God, will fly the flag of the party. Anybody, who believes that they must be president, you must be afraid of him.
“You don’t know what they want the presidency for. All of us know that Buhari had wanted to be president. Today, we have seen why he wanted to be president,” Wike said.
Earlier, Saraki had stated that he had the capacity to set the country on the path of growth, unity and reconciliation.
“The country is in dire need of a leader that will provide unity. A leader that will represent everybody from whatever part of the country that you come from. I think I am suited to provide that leadership,” Saraki stated.
“This is a job that requires all of us to be united and focused. Yes, we have individual ambitions, but at any given time, I am ready to sacrifice that ambition for the party.
“I will continue to appeal to the governors that, during this critical time, we must stay united. We must stay strong for the masses who depend on us to rescue this country,” Saraki said, who is touring the country as part of his campaign to secure delegates to win the PDP presidential nomination ahead of next year’s general election.
Meanwhile, State PDP Chairman, Felix Obuah commended the Senate President for his bold moves towards his aspiration.
Obuah, receiving the Senate President and his entourage at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt, assured Saraki that no one could stop his presidential aspiration if God wills it to happen.
“If today, God says you will be the President of this country, nobody, I repeat nobody, can stop you. We are praying for you; be rest assured that that desire that is burning in you will come to fulfillment,” party chairman said.
