Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has declared that no one in Nigeria is better qualified to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 than him.
On Tuesday, the Governor stated this during an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Wike stated that based on his achievements as Governor and the positions he has held, he believes no one other than himself is more qualified for the position of President in 2023.
The Governor stated that with his record as Minister and Governor, he is almost ready for the country’s highest position.
“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.
“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?,” Wike queried.
He advised his fellow politicians to rather talk of the issues and challenges facing the country instead of promoting their candidates, insisting that presidential aspirants must tell the people how they would solve the problems facing the country.
