The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has been approved by a group called the Cross River Renaissance Movement to run for President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the Peoples Democratic Party platform in 2023.

Wike is a fighter for the poor and vulnerable, according to the organisation.

This was stated in a statement published at the end of a meeting held in Calabar on Tuesday by the pressure group, which derives its membership from the Cross River State House of Assembly’s immediate past commissioners.

“The group notes, in particular, the sterling leadership qualities and developmental strides of the  Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and after a careful prognosis of the political situation in the country, characterised by high-level insecurity across the board, rising banditry, the  proliferation  of secessionist groups currently threatening the very fabric of our national unity, hereby calls on His Excellency, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, to  declare for the  2023 presidential election in order to salvage Nigeria as clearly demonstrated in his outing as Governor of  Rivers State.”

According to the group, they describe Wike as “a nationalist who truly believes in the unity and indissolubility of Nigeria and has clearly demonstrated this in his uncompromising stance against  separatist agitations and his liberal posture as demonstrated during the Sokoto inferno.”
