Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike has revealed that the process of consultation for the next governor of the State has begun.
The governor made the revelation at the inauguration of the Ezimgbu Road that was performed by the Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Fintiri on Monday in Port Harcourt.
He reiterated that no candidate would be imposed on the party or Rivers people.
He has also urged any member of his cabinet nursing governorship ambition to be at liberty to resign.
“This morning, our leaders came to me to wish me happy birthday. I told them thank you and that I also had a birthday gift for them. I told them, you know I’m leaving, now, we have to start consultation for who takes over.
“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.
“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.”
On the project commissioning, Rivers state Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, said it was evident that the Federal Government is not interested in revitalising the nation’s economy.
Governor Wike said this because the Federal Government’s programmes on stimulation of the economy have failed on all fronts.
Performing the inauguration, the Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, noted that he had always known Governor Wike as a man who has instituted a culture of commissioning projects in Rivers State for the good of the people.
“As recent as April this year, so many projects were commissioned in the State and today, instead of receiving birthday gifts from the Rivers people, he has decided to celebrate his birthday in a grand style by giving Rivers people a carnival of commissioning,” Fintiri said.
