“Let me say it loud and clear that I will not impose my successor. We will allow the successor to emerge via primaries. Look, people will change.
If you think that someone will behave in a certain way so you trust him and install him with all the resources, on getting to power, he will change and use all the resources to fight you as it is happening in Akwa Ibom, Edo, Kano, even here, just to mention the current ones. In Abia State, a successor gave devastating evidences to jail his former master. I will never suffer their fate.
Let my successor win on his own and I will hand over to him and I will thereafter never ask him of what he is doing.”
Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
