The Governor, who is eyeing the presidential ticket of the
PDP, also said that the Southsouth zone cannot win the
presidency in 2023.

insistence by Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, that the PDP
presidential ticket be zoned to the Southsouth region.
Tambuwal spoke in Abuja on Tuesday during a meeting with
former principal officers of the National Assembly.
The meeting was in continuation of his consultative
engagements to garner support for his aspiration.
