Ibadan , Oyo -Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, has commented on the 2023 presidential election, sending gratitude to Nigerians for supporting the shifting of power to the southern part of Nigeria.

Wike said this on Friday, March 3, when he joined his counterpart in Oyo, Seyi Makinde, in the commissioning of the state’s 5,000,000-litre Aviation Fuel Dispensing Depot at the Ibadan airport in the Alakia area of the state.
