Wike stressed that Nigeria deserves a leader who can offer requisite logistics and other support to security agencies in order to stamp out insecurity in the land.

“I say so with all amount of seriousness and I challenge everybody who is from the Southern part of Nigeria; who is from South-South, who is from South-East to say so boldly too. Check all of us, look and determine who can even defend the interest of Ndi Igbo better than me?

“The injustice all over the country only needs serious leadership. That can never happen under a proactive leader. Ask other aspirants, when they were in power, what did they do? How many of them have spoken out? Look, don’t waste your votes on such people.”
