Speaking at the ocassion, Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Wike expressed confidence in the the former Vice President and Waziri Adamawa as the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election.

In his remarks, Governor Wike declared that the position of the President is exclusively for an individual with experience and track record for excellence.

He also advised the aspirants from PDP to agree on who is the best among all of them in order to guarantee the victory of the party victory in 2019.

"I have never seen Nigeria so divided along religious, ethnic and regional lines. This division is as a result of the mismanagement by the APC".

He urged all PDP members irrespective of their status to ensure that the march to the Presidential Villa is not truncated by disunity. To this end, he said other aspirants would be offered the platform to consult with Rivers PDP members.

"God will make sure that the right candidate emerges". There is no benefit that Rivers State has gotten from this APC Federal Government.

He implored all PDP presidential aspirants to contest within acceptable limits as the race is not a do-or-die affair, but a movement to oust a failed APC Federal Government.

FORMER Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has hinged his decision to run for the presidency once again on the need to rescue Nigeria from the destructive path the All Progressives Congress, APC, has set it.
