Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has urged Nigerians not to allow the 2023 general elections to fail.

Allowing such failure, he said, will increase political polarisation, exacerbate social fault lines, and set Nigeria’s democracy backward.

Governor Wike gave the charge at the 2023 Port Harcourt International Conference, sponsored by the Rivers State government, with the theme: Deepening Democratic Culture and Institutions for Sustainable Development and Security in Nigeria, held in Port Harcourt.

The governor noted that barely one month away, Nigerians are hoping and praying for the 2023 general elections to herald the deepening of democratic culture, the rule of law, and good governance in the country.

But the opportunity to elect a new President of the federation and 30 State Governors, he insisted, should be a success because it will consolidate and strengthen the roots of democracy in the national life of Nigeria.

On his part; former President Olusegun Obasanjo who was also at the event, charged incumbents not to destroy policies and programmes of their predecessors.
