In 2019, Wike was reelected for the second term which will end in 2023.
The Governor is one of the prominent members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a vocal critic of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration.
The 2023 election is fast approaching and many politicians have started revealing their ambitions. Wike hasn't made official comment on his political ambition in 2023.
However, there are some political positions suitable for the governor after his tenure ends in 2023. They include:
1. The Presidency
As a major stakeholder in the opposition party, Wike should be among the contenders if the PDP zones its presidential ticket to the South in 2023.
The governor could also emerge as the party's vice presidential candidate if the ticket goes to the North.
2. A senatorial seat
Wike is also qualified to contest for a senatorial seat in Rivers State in 2023. There are a lot of former governors in the senate. Wike could also decide to join them in 2023.
3. A Ministerial seat
Wike could also be appointed as a minister if the Peoples Democratic Party regains power in 2023.
As a formidable force in the Niger-Delta region, the minister for Niger-Delta Affairs will be suitable for him.
