Amidst Rivers crisis, Wike shed light on the longstanding tensions between himself and Governor Fubara, providing insights into the root causes of their discord amidst the ongoing turmoil in the state.

In the wake of the escalating crisis gripping Rivers State, former Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who now serves as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has made startling revelations regarding his contentious relationship with the current Governor of Rivers State, Fubara.

Addressing the media at his office in Abuja On Tuesday, VerseNews reports that the Minister Wike shed light on the longstanding tensions between himself and Governor Fubara, providing insights into the root causes of their discord amidst the ongoing turmoil in the state.

Wike refuted allegations of influencing the State House of Assembly to pursue Fubara’s impeachment, asserting that he and the governor now align with different political factions within the Peoples Democratic Party, despite their shared party affiliation.

The ex-governor of Rivers State urged his successor to address his concerns with the state Assembly directly and refrain from regarding them as subordinates.

Wike further called upon Fubara to uphold the agreements made both prior to his assumption of office and during interventions in the Rivers crisis, including those brokered by President Bola Tinubu.

During his tenure as Rivers governor, the minister noted that he granted Fubara access to State Executive Council meetings and delegated projects for inauguration.

However, Wike stated his decision not to intervene in the ongoing crisis, emphasizing that Fubara had not sought his assistance directly.

He said, “I put him (Fubara) there too. Let him just comply with the agreement, and I don’t have a problem.”

Speaking further, the minister wondered why Fubara refused to re-present the 2024 budget after the court had invalidated an earlier budget he presented.

He asked rhetorically: “What is it in the budget that you don’t want to present?”

When challenged on why he can not concentrate on his job as FCT minister, he responded by saying, “leave Rivers State? Am I from where? Am I from Abuja? I should not oil my political machinery. Control where?”

Wike referenced what was happening in Akwa Ibom State, saying, “Akwa Ibom governor, did he not take every member of Udom’s (Emmanuel) cabinet?

“People are terrible! The whole cabinet supported you. The best is to take 50%, 50%. What’s wrong with that?

“Is that control? Solve your problem. I, as a minister, have a good relationship with the National Assembly because I need them.”
