Governor Nyesom Wike on Monday donated N200 million to Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in Kaduna State for their upkeep.

Mr Wike made the donation when he visited the state secretariat of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kaduna as part of his campaign tour to seek for the party’s ticket for 2023 presidential poll.

“We must not be sentimental about winning 2023 election.

“We need people who are courageous and competent to win the election come 2023 and this we will do when you give us the mandate,” he said.

Mr Wike said that the first thing any serious government must do upon assuming office was to address the issue of security challenges bevelling the country.

“My major concern within my first six months in office is how to restore our states, how to restore our country and if you cannot do that, there is no need to say you want to govern any state of head any country,” Mr Wike said.

He said intelligence gathering was key to ending insecurity.

“One of the major problems we have as a nation is that we don’t spend much money on intelligent gathering.

“Unfortunately, we spend more money on buying weapons than on gathering intelligence,” he said.

Mr Wike enjoined party members to eschew any form of biase by uniting to support a single candidate, ahead of 2023 election.
