Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike revealed that several politicians in the state would go on retirement after the 2023 general elections.
The lawyer made this statement during the commissioning of the Rumukurishi flyover in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
He further said the 2023 election would determine those politicians who can pull crowd and influence voters in the state.
Wike also noted that the Peoples Democratic Party is ready to go if it loses the election, stating that other parties should also accept victory once they are defeated.
He said ” 2023 will confirm to us those that have an influence on voters. Those that their people will listen to and vote.
“It is not only for you to be in Abuja and tell them whatever you’re telling them, come home because our Polling boots are not going to be in Abuja.
“This election will retire people in 2023. If they win us we will go, if we win them they will go. In fact they have already gone”.
The Governor also chided the ruling All Progressives Congress for failure to deliver rail line from Port Harcourt to Maiduguri.
