Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will do everything in its capacity to defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 elections.
Wike, who is a chieftain of the party, said this after a closed-door meeting with the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, shortly after the presidential primary which held in Port Harcourt on 6 October.
“All PDP people are happy. We are one family, you may support aspirant A or aspirant B but once somebody has emerged, you owe it a duty to make sure that your party returns to power,” he said.
“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.”
