Only Death Will Stop Me From Contesting 2023 Presidency – Wike

Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike has said only death will stop him from contesting the 2023 presidential election.

Wike’s statement during a BBC Pidgin interview was said to have stunned persons, who believed hr would withdraw from the race to support a likely northern candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

When asked whether there was anything that would make him withdraw from the presidential race, Wike said: “The only thing that will make me withdraw is if I am dead.

“But if I am alive, nothing. We will finish it 28 and 29. But if I die, dead persons don’t contest elections.

“But I know that God has promised me that I won’t die. There is nothing that will make me withdraw from it.

“It is what I want to do for my country. Before I came out I told my wife and she asked me to go. If I didn’t tell my wife and she became angry and asked me not to go then I would obey”.

Wike said he would not step down for any consensus candidate, saying consensus should be done with equity, fairness and justice.
