Saraki who was in the state for the second time in about two weeks, met with Governor Nyesome Wike at the Government House, Port Hacourt, before moving to the party secretariat to interact with faithfuls.
State Chairman of the party, Felix Obuah while speaking at the party secretariat applauded Saraki’s courage in defecting from the All Progressives Congress (APC), and accordingly assured him of God’s protection in all schemes against him.
Continuing, Obuah who is a front line Christian further assured the embattled senate president that nobody, except God, can stop his presidential aspiration.
He said the former Kwara State Governor possessed the requisite qualifications to lead the country in the capacity of President, stressing that only the Almighty God has the final say in the affairs of men
‘In the light of this, the Rivers PDP is arguing that since the voice of the people is the voice of God, then Saraki has no need to worry because the people have said it loud and clear that he is eminently qualified.
Obuah assuredly informed Saraki that Rivers was his home and that everyone in the state was happy with his antecedents and the fight to defend democracy in the country, adding, ”if there is any man in the PDP who has demonstrated the will and zeal to lead the country, you are one of the surest bets”.
Earlier, Governor Wike had enjoined him as the leader of the National Assembly to see to the quick passage of the Electoral Act.
In the case where the Presidency fails to assent to the budget again, Wike advised that they should also not pass the Independent National Electoral Commission budget, because it is based on the Electoral Act.
He however cautioned delegates from electing desperate candidates as it is a job that requires unity and focus of everyone within the party.
While soliciting for the support of the state, Saraki said that he strongly believes his partnership with Rivers in the quest to liberate the country from the shackles of oppression which are being foisted on the people by the APC regime will be achieved.
According to him, ”Nigeria is in dire need of a leader that will provide unity; a leader that will represent everybody from whatever part of the country that they might come from, and I think I am the right person for the job”.
