The Governor of River State, Nyesom Wike, has declared that he will support Rotimi Amaechi, a former Governor of the State, if he declares to contest for President in 2023.
Wike who made this revelation during a live interview on Arise Television, however, stated that his support for Amaechi will only materialise, if the Minister of Transport runs on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He added that if the PDP zones the Presidency to the South and Rotimi Amaechi is running under the PDP, he would back him, but added that if Amaechi was to run under the APC, it would amount to anti-party activity for him (Wike) to support him.
“If he is running under PDP, why not? If he is running under APC, Why should i support him? I am not a member of APC.
“If Rotimi Amaechi is running for President under PDP, and he gets the party ticket, Why not?”, he said.
