Rivers Lawmaker Dares Wike, Declares Support For Atiku.
The lawmaker representing Degema/Bonny Federal Constituency of Rivers State in the House of Representatives, Farah Dagogo has declared support for the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar.
Dagogo in a statement on Friday described Atiku as the candidate that Nigeria needs to take the country to greater heights.
The lawmaker promised that Atiku will get a landslide victory in Rivers State and will also win the majority of votes in the south-south and other regions of the county.
He said the commitment of the PDP candidate and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa to the restructuring of Nigeria including the issues of resource control makes them the best fit to take over the presidency in 2023.
Naija News reports the endorsement is contrary to the stand of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike who has declared that Atiku won’t get his support and that of Rivers people for the 2023 presidency except Iyorchia Ayu steps down as the PDP National Chairman and is replaced by a southerner.
However, Dagogo in a statement on Friday made available to newsmen by his special adviser, media, and publicity, Ibrahim Lawal, said Atiku has all the leadership qualities and integrity needed to be the next President of Nigeria.
