Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has said a decision on the presidential candidate to vote in the 2023 general elections in the state will soon be made known.
He said when the decision will be taken, Rivers electorate, who have enjoyed good governance under his watch and already desirous to reciprocate the gesture, will be told which presidential candidate to vote.
Wike disclosed this on Tuesday at the inauguration of Rukpokwu-Rumuapu-Izo-Ogbodo Igwuruta Link Road in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area on Tuesday.
The governor said based on his administration’s performance in the areas of infrastructure, Rivers people were already home with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He, however, urged the electorate to cast their votes only for PDP gubernatorial candidate as well as national and state assemblies candidates.
“Then the other one (presidential), I will come and tell you where we will vote. These ones  (governorship, senatorial, reps and State Assembly candidates) I mentioned now, make sure you come and vote for them. Very soon, we’ll meet in our houses and take a decision where we are going to.”
On the issue of security, the governor  said with the inauguration of the Police Intelligence and Surveillance Centre in Port Harcourt by the Inspector-General of Police on Monday, criminals involved in kidnapping would be easily arrested for prosecution.
“Yesterday (Monday), the Inspector-General of Police came and we commissioned the Intelligence and Surveillance Centre. I want to tell all of you who may be thinking of kidnapping. The time is over. As it is now, in that intelligence centre, we will be watching you on the screen. Anywhere you are on the road, we are seeing you.  That period is over when you think you will commit a crime and runaway,” he added.
