Governor of Rivers State Nyesom Wike has advised all candidates from the opposition parties, including Senator Teslim Folarin of the All Progressives Congress, to drop out of contention in favor of Seyi Makinde of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The leader of the G5 governors stated this on Thursday at the PDP rally in Ibadan, the capital of the Oyo state.
Wike urged voters to support the governor of Oyo in the state’s gubernatorial election, claiming that Seyi Makinde is the only legitimate candidate standing.
He went on to say, “I do not want to market a weak product. Do you want to market a weak product (referring to the crowd)? You already know Seyi Makinde has done well since you gave him the mandate in 2019. And therefore, the only way can benefit more is for you to allow him to continue the good works he has started.
“Let me use this opportunity and tell all of you (the electorates) if anybody is contesting (for the Oyo guber election) in other parties, today, 5th January 2023, please I’m giving you the final notice, withdraw now!
“The people of Oyo have spoken that it is PDP. Vote for Seyi as governor, vote for House of Reps, vote for NAAS (National Assembly), The other one (president), Seyi will talk to you.”
