2023 Presidency: Wike rubbishes consensus, says only death will make him quit race

Wike

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has vowed not to step down for any consensus candidate of the party ahead of its presidential primary.

The Governor said only death will make him quit his ambition to become the President of Nigeria.

“The only thing that will make me to quit is death; if I’m alive, we will finish it on 28/29 of May (date for PDP presidential primaries).”

He made the assertion in an interview with BBC pidgin in Port Harcourt on Friday.

Wike, who spoke in pidgin English, said “I have been a local government chairman which is the grassroots, I have been a minister and now a Governor. How many of the aspirants have such experience?”

He explained that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has only been a vice president, not a minister or even Governor.

“If they put me and other aspirants side by side, the delegates will choose me, because I have been the one going from State to State telling them to vote for me.

“Why would I step down for anybody? If you want to do consensus, you will do it with equity and fairness.

“If the consensus you want to do is to gang up against one or two people, why will I join in that type of consensus. The people talking about consensus, are their hands clean? Their hands are not clean,” he added.
