The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, Sunday said the leading opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the only political platform through which Nigeria can move out of its present mess.
Wike who addressed newsmen after meeting with the flag-bearer of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government was the “most inefficient and ineffective” the country has ever had.
He assured Nigerians that the opposition party will work together to wrestle power from the APC in the 2019 general elections, noting that the present dispensation has failed Nigerians.
Wike said, “We have no party that will salvage the country other than the PDP. A candidate has emerged and we owe it a duty to see that the party takes over from the most inefficient and ineffective party in control of the federal government.
“So, we are doing everything we can to make sure that we don’t give any gap for APC. They have failed Nigerians and we will do everything to take over in 2019.”
He noted that the primary election is a thing of the past and all the members of the party have to be united for its candidate to triumph.
“My happiness today is that the convention was successful and it went on without hitches.
