Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has called on presidential aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to forge a common front to sack the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government.
Wike made the call yesterday when a PDP presidential aspirant and former Sokoto State governor, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa paid him a condolence visit at Government House, Port Harcourt, over the death of the attorney general of Rivers State, Hon. Emmanuel Aguma (SAN).
The governor urged all presidential aspirants to support whoever emerges as the PDP candidate after the presidential primary, because power comes from God.
He said, “What we 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.”
Wike said every member of the PDP must work as a team for the party to emerge victorious in 2019.
On the death of Aguma, the governor thanked the former Sokoto State governor for his condolence visit, saying the burial process will begin on September 12, 2018 with a lecture on the life and times of the late Senior Advocate of Nigeria, while actual burial will be on September 15, 2018.
He described the Late AG of Rivers State as a dependable ally who stood by his administration to the end of his life.
In his remarks, former Sokoto State governor, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa prayed God to grant Rivers people the strength to bear the loss.
Bafarawa said that visit was to condole with the Rivers State governor. He said that all human beings will taste death at some point, praying God to grant the late Aguma paradise.
