So, the issue of who is going to take over from me, the process has started and it has started today being my birthday. But what is important to us, like I have always said, we are not going to impose anybody,” Wike said.

Governor Wike went on to say that he has informed some Rivers State leaders who paid him a birthday visit that the process of selecting the next governor of the state has officially started.

This morning, our leaders came to me to wish me happy birthday. I told them thank you and that I also have a birthday gift for them. I told them, you know I’m leaving, now, we have to start consultation for who takes over,” he said.

Adding that;

And I told them, let nobody go and spend his money because after the consultation, we will all sit down and say this is the person we think that should continue where we have stopped.”

Governor Wike stressed the need of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) continuing to ensure free and fair elections.The process of selecting my successor has started - Wike reveals

Why would anyone in Rivers State be gearing up to campaign for election on the platform of another party instead of the PDP, he claims, if not for the daring to rig an election?

He stated that whatever plans they have, they will fail.
