2023 presidency: Wike, Makinde, Fayose, others meet in Ekiti

Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, Gov. Seyi Makinde and former governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose met in Ekiti State on Monday over the 2023 presidency.

Makinde and Fayose both stood by Wike as he met with delegates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State to solicit votes as he seeks to become the presidential flag bearer of the party.

Speaking at the meeting, Wike said Nigeria lacks a proper Commander-in-Chief.

According to him, the killing of innocent people by bandits and insurgent groups was caused by the lack of a proper leader in Nigeria.

Wike said: “A proper Commander-in-Chief will never allow this country to go down like this. What am I doing with the service chiefs? Their business is to protect Nigeria and Nigerians.

“Look at our country, every day, the only project we get is people have died. The only project Nigeria continues to get is that 55 people have been killed in Zamfara yesterday.

The presidential aspirant maintained that the All Progressives Congress-led federal government has failed in its primary responsibility to protect life and property, hence, has no business being in governance.

“First in the oath of office is the protection of life and property. Any government that cannot protect life and property then that you have no business to being governance and APC has no business to being governance.”

Governor Wike emphasised that what is happening in Nigeria is affecting everybody including Moslems, Christians, Northerners and Southerners alike.

The Rivers State governor said never had Nigerians been so divided as seen under President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.

Governor Wike described his quest to rescue Nigeria and ensure the safety of life and property under a proper Commander-in-Chief, as a mission to right the wrongs and give Nigerians back their country.

“Nobody can say what will happens in the next two minutes. As you’re going home now, you don’t know what will happen. Nigeria has come to that stage.

“Look at the hunger. Look at the poverty. This country requires a leader now that can confront the issues of insecurity.
