Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, says if zoning the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket to the North will cause the party to win the 2023 general election, he will support the decision.

The governor has meanwhile ruled out the possibility of him supporting any All Progressives Congress presidential candidate even if the person is of Rivers State or Southern Nigerian extraction.

Governor Wike shared this view during an interview with BBC Pigin at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

The Rivers state governor explained that the reason why the PDP has not taken a final decision on whether its presidential candidate for the 2023 general election should be from the North or South of the country is because stakeholders are still strategizing the best options that will guarantee the party’s victory in the polls.

He stated that PDP is keen to takeover the realm of power in 2023 and is not in a hurry to give the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) a glimpse of its strategy to wrest power from it in the next general election.

“I am from Southern part of Nigeria. I will be happy if power returns to the South, but if PDP will win the 2023 presidential election by zoning the presidential ticket to the North, I will not be opposed to it”
