Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the only party that can rescue Nigeria from its present state of insecurity and economic woes.

Diri, who spoke on Monday when the Governor of Rivers State, Chief Nyesome Wike, visited him in Yenagoa, said the chances of PDP to produce the President of Nigeria in 2023 was very bright.

He described the presidency as a sacred office in the country, adding that PDP has been repositioned to ensure it wins the presidency in the 2023 general election.

According to him, PDP is the only party with the pedigree to give Nigerians hope and a sense of direction.

He said: “The presidency is one sacred office and we must do everything to protect it and ensure that our party clinches victory at the 2023 general polls.

“The number one thing for our party is our unity. The second is who becomes president. We have a capable national chairman that can steer us back to power come 2023.

“Bayelsa and Rivers states are brothers and sisters historically and culturally and if anyone is trying to divide us, we must come against them.

“I call on Ijaw leaders to come together and resolve whatever issues we may have amicably. Within a family, we will always have issues but that should not remove our brotherliness,” Diri said.

In his remarks, Governor Wike expressed confidence that the PDP will produce the next president of Nigeria.

According to him, Nigerians were waiting for the party to rescue them from the current situation in the country, stressing that leaders and members of the party cannot afford to miss this opportunity.

He emphasised the need for unity of purpose between Bayelsa and Rivers and the entire PDP, saying without a united front success would be elusive.
