Governor of Rivers State and a frontline contender for the PDP presidential ticket, Barr. Nyesom Wike has listed his reason to agreeing to a consensus candidate for his party. He gave the reasons yesterday, in Minna, Niger state, when he visited PDP delegates ahead of the party's presidential primary.
According to the Governor, a consensus candidate for the party should be based on equity and fairness and not based on the whims of one person.
"I will agree on consensus if it is based on equity, justice, and fairness because as it is, those who are talking about consensus are not sincere and there is nothing like consensus in our constitution."
He however noted that “whoever emerges as the flagbearer, I will do whatever I can to ensure that the PDP wins the election”.
