Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike said insecurity in Nigeria would be effectively tackled if a courageous person is elected as President.
The governor spoke on Monday while addressing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) delegates on Monday in Maiduguri.
He declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) have failed in tackling insecurity and economic problems.
Wike said citizens can no longer go to their farm and some other places due to fear of being kidnapped or killed.
“Nigeria is dying and we must not allow Nigeria to die. We must rescue this country.
“I believe that Nigeria has hope. So, I want to run for the presidency of this country under the PDP.
“We were only hearing of insecurity in Borno, but now it is all over. Hunger doesn’t know Muslims or Christians; insecurity does not know North or South.
“We need somebody who have the courage to fight insecurity in this country and I want to tell you that I have that courage,” he said.
PDP Chairman in the State, Zanna Gaddama hailed Wike for challenging the ruling APC on matters that affect the people across Nigeria.
Gaddama urged party faithful to support the governor to get the PDP presidential ticket.
