Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that Nigeria needs a mad man as president.
The Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential aspirant said he has so much energy burning up within him that he wants to work with.
Wike stated this while addressing PDP delegates in Kogi State, on Wednesday.
Calling on the delegates to vote for him in the forthcoming presidential primary election, Wike said only a mad man can turn the situation of Nigeria around.
Promising to take Nigeria to the promise land, the Rivers governor said;
“The energy in me is too much. I want to use the energy to work for the country.
“I have made myself available for my party, and to be voted to become the next president of Federal Republic of Nigeria. Never in the history of this country have we so divided. I can bring back the country back on its track of greatness. It doesn’t matter where you are from. It takes a mad man to govern Nigeria.”
Governor Nyesom Wike also slammed presidential aspirants who dumped the PDP in the past after benefiting from it.
He reemphasized that only a fearless and courageous party man like him can turn the economy of Nigeria around.
“As for me, if you don’t vote for me in our party primary, I will still remain a member of the PDP. I have benefited from this party, and so I have no excuse to give, for defecting to another party”, the governor said.
