Gov Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says the G5-Governors will soon announce their choice presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The election is billed for February 25.
Gov Wike made the statement during the campaign flag-off of the Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ikwerre Local Government Area on Tuesday. The event held at St Martin’s Anglican Church.
He said, “This time, no army will do anything. No Fakorode will do any thing. No police will do anything.
“Now, it is one man, one vote. All the votes must be in one basket from the governorship to the House of Assembly. The other one we are concluding. When we conclude, you will be told.
“Nobody should intimidate you. Nobody should tell you any story. We are free-born in this country. We are not second-class citizens. Nobody can tell us anything.
“I dare them. Let anybody do any funny thing. We’ll tell them we are from Rivers State.
“As we finish from here now, you’ll go home and start working before the appropriate time when we will ring the bell. When you hear the bell ringing, know that the decision has been taken.”
