2023: Nobody is more qualified than me to rule — Wike
The incumbent Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Woke has openly proud that he is the most worthy person to pilot the affairs of Nigeria in 2023.
Wike said this during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, adding that no Nigerian possess his credentials and leadership qualifications.
According to Wike, being a Minister as well as the governor of the oil-rich state give him the needed experience to govern the country.
He said, “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?
“It is not good for anybody to say ‘my aspirant is the best of the aspirants. I don’t think so. All I preach is that people should talk on issues. Nigeria has a problem. If they have given you the opportunity, what are you going to do to make sure that Nigerians benefit?”
