Nobody can impose my successor on Rivers people – Governor Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has promised to resist any cabal within and outside the state who tries to force his successor on the people of Rivers come 2023.

Wike noted that he had not annointed anyone to succeed him in 2023 when his tenure comes to an end.

“Let me say it again, I have never sat with anybody to say I will make you governor. But, as a governor, nobody from anywhere, be it in the party, in Abuja, will impose who will be the candidate of PDP in Rivers State,” the governor stated during a special thanksgiving service in commemoration of the second anniversary of the second tenure of his administration at the St. Paul’s Cathedral, Diobu, Port Harcourt.

“Nobody can impose a candidate here in this state. So, if you are running to Abuja, you are wasting your time.”

He further stated that leaders and stakeholders in the state would meet at the appropriate time to decide his successor.
