2023: Wike storms Ogun, taps PDP delegates ahead of primaries



Presidential aspirant and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday stormed Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, to solicit support of PDP delegates to achieve his bid.

Mr Wike and former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, were special guests at the official declaration of Ogun PDP chieftain, Ladi Adebutu, for governorship in 2023.


The duo declared their support for Mr Adebutu.

Mr Wike, in his remark, noted that Mr Adebutu had continued to spend his personal money and resources to assist the people of the state.


He assured that electing him as the governor of the state would afford him a greater capacity to empower the people more.

The governor described Adebutu as a courageous leader who stood and fought for the party when other leaders left.


He, therefore, called on members and chieftains of the party, as well as the people of the state, to support Adebutu in his ambition to become governor of the state.

Mr Wike, who had also declared interest in the 2023 presidential race under the PDP platform, solicited support of the delegates ahead of the May 28 presidential primaries of the party.


Also, Mr Fayose recalled that the party had in times past “struggled and travelled through the forest” in the state.

He, however, commended Mr Adebutu for standing firm and navigating through troubled waters to restore the party to a formidable force in the state.


“After many years of struggle, it has indeed been tough, but we thank God that Adebutu has been able to emerge a worthy leader of PDP in Ogun by reconciling factional groups together,” he said.

Mr Adebutu, while responding, assured that if elected as governor, he would put in place a deliberate, concerted and determined team that would work together in recovering Ogun back from the shackles of disjointed and wasteful programmes
