The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, keeps the party guessing and ignores the PDP’s chieftains in events scheduled by his administration to inaugurate some of the completed projects.
According to The Nation, the development is the first of its kind in a long time, where the governor did not invite significant members of his party for a series of projects he would be commissioning and inaugurating.
