Wike donates N200 million to IDPs in Kaduna

Kaduna—Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike in Monday donated the sum of N200 million to victims of banditry and other violent clashes in Kaduna State.

According to reports by Punch newspaper, Wike donated the money when he visited the state as part of his consultation to seek the 2023 presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The governor, while addressing PDP members at the Secretariat of the party at Ungwan Sanu, Old NDA, Kaduna, lamented the situation of residents of the state due to the activities of terrorists.

Wike, while donating to support the victims of attacks in the state, noted that insecurity would be a thing of the past when he becomes the next president of the country.

He said, “I am here today to say that this country needs rescue. We came here to say we must not take sentiment to the 2023 election. We came here to tell you that what PDP requires now is to get somebody who is courageous, who can withstand this party, and win this election in 2023.

“I am not here to tell you that I am just a mere presidential aspirant, I want to win the election if you give me the ticket on 29 and 30 May 2022.

“It is no longer a story of the situation our country found itself under APC. Take, for example, the state we are in today, Kaduna state is one of the most peaceful states, people travel freely.

“No leader In the North will say that he does not have a house in Kaduna state, people can leave Abuja at 10:00 pm at the night and come to Kaduna.

“When I was minister, I come by road but today what is happening? Kaduna has lost its glory and it is because of the inefficiency of those in the government.”

The Rivers State governor pleaded with the delegates to support him and give him 80 percent of their votes, saying that at least, 60 out of the 78 delegates from the State should vote for him, while the rest 18 can be shared among other aspirants.

In his response, a former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, said he would make Governor Wike President if he had the power as a result of his contribution to the PDP in the last seven years.
