Nobody can become Nigeria's president without Rivers – Wike insists

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has declared that he doesn't see anybody becoming president of the Nigeria without votes from Rivers, Kano and Lagos state.

The governor insisted that Rivers State plays an important role in who becomes the next president of Nigeria.

Wike while stressing further, said that whoever would become the next president of Nigeria needs to protect votes in Rivers, including either Kano or Lagos States.

The politician said this on Thursday during the grand finale of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) local government election campaign in Ulakwo, Etche Local Government area of Rivers state.

Wike said: “I keep telling the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that no state has given more votes to the party than Rivers.


“And it is only in Rivers, in the whole of South-South, that the All Progressives Congress (APC) didn’t get 25 per cent votes in 2019 General
election. We taught them a lesson.

“In Nigeria, nobody wins presidency if you didn’t win either Rivers and Lagos or Kano and Lagos together. Rivers is not a state anybody can joke
with. Some states went to negotiate with them. Rivers didn’t do it.”
