Even The Buhari’s People Has Lost Faith Him – Wike
President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state of Katsina, according to Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, is dissatisfied with the way the security situation in Nigeria is being handled.
Wike claims that when he recently visited Katsina and spoke with the people, they expressed their dissatisfaction.
During a consultative meeting with stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state on Wednesday in Lokoja, the state capital, the Governor made this known.
The people, he said, bemoaned the rise in insecurity in general, but also chastised President Buhari for failing to protect his own people in Katsina.
“I was in Katsina yesterday (Tuesday) and people were saying the president is from Katsina; our own son is the president, yet so much insecurity in Katsina State. So, it does not matter now where you come from, what matters now is who is going to do this work,” Wike said.
Wike vowed to create a government of unity free of racial or tribal prejudices if he finally becomes President of Nigeria while soliciting for delegates’ votes to become the PDP nominee for the 2023 presidential election.
He also vowed to be a “speak and do” President who is willing to make the correct judgments in the country’s and people’s best interests.
“If we win, we will form a government of national unity in which we will bring everybody together. God didn’t make mistake to have put us all in a country called Nigeria. God has given us everything. All that is required is strong leadership that can put everything together and you’ll see Nigeria become what it should truly be.”
“When I take action, you’ll know the president has taken action. It will not be a leadership that is unsure of what decision to make or not. I have the character and people know me for the character that I have and what I will do. Nigerians know my views on issues. If we want to do something, let’s do it rightly.”
The Rivers State Governor urged PDP delegates to vote for a candidate who can get the job done rather than one who is biased or motivated.
He also cautioned against ‘fly-by-night’ politicians who just affiliate with the PDP when they want something and then switch to another party when things don’t go their way.
