“No one project awarded by this administration will remain abandoned before we leave on the 29 May 2023.
“And then, another PDP government will come and take over from us. Let me assure you, God has already sealed it.
“Let nobody bother himself, PDP will take over Rivers State again because it is very obvious. Why will PDP take over? We will take over because we have made promises to you and we have fulfilled the promises.”
Wike spoke at the weekend n Port Harcourt while addressing crowd of PDP members, who gathered to receive APC defectors.
Wike pointed out that the people of Rivers had seen that the PDP meant well for them and decided to put their fate in the hands of Almighty God first, and then the PDP.

“Nobody can say because you came in yesterday, or because you came in today, you are not entitled. Everybody is entitled as far as PDP is concern,” he said.
