Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor, has called on presidential aspirants contesting on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to forge a common front to remove the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government from power.
He also urged the aspirants to support whoever emerges as the PDP presidential candidate after the party’s primary, stating that “power comes from God”.
He spoke on Thursday at the Government House, Port Harcourt, during a condolence visit by PDP presidential aspirant and former Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, over the death of Honourable Emmanuel Aguma (SAN), the Attorney General of Rivers State, .
He said: “What we are saying is that all of us must put our heads together to remove this government that does not mean well for Nigerians.
“Power comes from God. If God says it is you, there is nothing any man can do about it. Man can only struggle”.
He also urged PDP members to endeavour to work as a team for the party to emerge victorious in 2019.
On the death of Aguma, Wike thanked Bafarawa for his condolence visit.
He said the burial process would begin on September 12, 2018, with a lecture on the life and times of the late Senior Advocate of Nigeria, while the actual burial would be on September 15, 2018.
Wike described the late Aguma as a dependable ally, who stood by his administration till his death.
In his remarks, the former Sokoto State Governor said the visit was to condole with the Rivers State Governor, just as he prayed that God would grant the late Attorney-General paradise.
