I’m most qualified for 2023 presidency — Wike



Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said nobody is as qualified as himself to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari.

Wike speaks during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on February 1, 2022.

He spoke from Port Harcourt during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, said based on his records as Minister as well as the governor of the oil-rich state, he has the requisite experience to govern the country.

“For somebody of my kind and record, a governor and a minister, I don’t even see anybody who will tell me that he is much more qualified than me, I don’t think that is possible,” Wike said.

“Assuming today I want to run for the office of the President, what quality do you think I do not have? Why do you think I cannot provide the right leadership for Nigeria to move forward?

“It is not good for anybody to say ‘my aspirant is the best of the aspirants. I don’t think so. All I preach is that people should talk on issues. Nigeria has a problem. If they have given you the opportunity, what are you going to do to make sure that Nigerians benefit?”

Besides the 2023 general elections, Governor Wike also spoke about the activities of the immediate past government in Rivers State.

He recalled that when he came into power in 2015, there was no handover note from his predecessor on the true state of affairs in Rivers.
