Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state stated that only a ‘mad man’ can rule Nigeria properly.
Wike, speaking to delegates from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State, said Nigeria was on the verge of a split.
However, he added that the country needs a ‘crazy person’ to turn things around.
He urged the delegates to vote for him in the primaries as he boasted that he had the power to work for Nigeria and take the country to the promised land.
The emperor said, “I have too much power. I want to use force to serve the country.
“I have made myself available for my party, and to be voted to become the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Never in the history of this country have we so divided. I can bring back the country on its track to greatness. It doesn’t matter where you are from. It takes a mad man to govern Nigeria.”
He said Nigerians need a courageous person like him who can speak truth to power.
“As for me, if you don’t vote for me in our party primary, I will remain a member of the PDP. I have benefitted from this party, and so I have no excuse to defect to another party,” he said.
