Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has said Rivers electorates will use the forthcoming 2023 election to punish the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for abandoning them during the October and November 2022 flooding incidence.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Governor Wike made the remark at the Community Secondary School in Akinima Town during the Rivers State PDP Campaign Flag-off Rally at Ahoada West Local Government Area (LGA) on Tuesday.
Governor Wike emphasised that even though the PDP national leadership refused to identify with Rivers communities, they gladly visited flood impacted communities in other States, and identified with them, which can now be interpreted that they hate Rivers State.
For such alleged hatred, Governor Wike said the electorate will use the power of their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to “pepper” the PDP national leadership in the forthcoming election.
“They don’t like us. If somebody says he doesn’t like you, will you force yourself on them?” Wike asked rhetorically.
