Olusegun Mimiko, former Governor of Ondo State, has stressed that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, needs Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to stand a better chance of victory in the general election.

Mimiko stated this on Wednesday when he flagged off the construction of the Azikiwe-Iloabuchii road in Mile 2 Diobu, Port Harcourt.  

The former governor of Ondo State noted that Wike has given so much to the PDP and will play a critical role in the 2023 elections.

Mimiko said, “Your Excellency, our party, the PDP, a party for which you have laboured so much, seems saddled with the historical duty of forging this unity, a unity premised on truth, equity, and justice, a unity upon which rescuing Nigeria from the far from the satisfactory performance of the past seven years will be built.”

He added, “Beyond the self-evident physical transformation, you (Wike) have stood as a bulwark against those sworn to emasculate the main opposition party, all in their bid to force a one-party State down the throats of Nigerians.

“It’s a mission that must be accomplished. A mission for which you’re specially positioned and favoured to play a major role. A mission that must be subscribed to by all lovers of our country.”

“You were at one point virtually a one-man countervailing force, defending and protecting our dear PDP. You’ve also, through bold legal challenges, deepened the national consciousness on the defects in the running of our defective federal system.”
