Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has promised to resist any cabal within and outside the state contemplating to impose his successor on residents come 2023.
He urged Christian leaders in the state to pray for a rancour-free transition ahead of the 2023 general poll.
The Rivers helmsman declared that he had not anointed anyone to succeed him in office.
Wike stated this at 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, on Sunday.
He said, “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.
“Nobody can impose a candidate here in this state. So, if you are running to Abuja, you are wasting your time.”
