Wike said the presidential contenders who abandoned the party do not deserve to have the PDP presidential ticket for the 2023 election while meeting with party delegates and leaders in Ibadan, Oyo state’s capital city.
According to The Nation, the governor claimed that these created dissension in the PDP in 2015 by posing as presidential candidates ahead of the election next year.
He reminded the Oyo leaders and delegates that the aspirants had built the new-PDP and had sold the party’s goodwill and electoral possibilities.

“The question is, who is to blame for the PDP’s loss of the 2015 election, which we are now paying for?” We are currently fighting for power.

Why should PDP members and Nigerians be concerned about betrayals?

“Right now, we’re in pain. Every day, people are dying. Over 1000 people were slain in Kaduna between January and March. There have been so many kidnappings.”
He also urged voters at all levels to be more cautious about the types of people with whom they wish to entrust the country’s leadership.
