Nyesom Wike, the former governor of Rivers State, has disclosed the causes of his ongoing disagreement with Siminalayi Fubara, his successor. These remarks were made by Wike, who is currently the Federal Capital Territory’s Minister, following a meeting in Abuja with a few PDP members.
He vehemently disapproved of Fubara’s choice to associate himself with his political opponents, according to Premium Times.
Wike stated that it’s not right to collaborate with those who opposed him during his political struggles to attain office. He clarified that his concerns were not related to financial gain but rather Fubara’s apparent attempt to gain control of the PDP structure in Rivers State. Wike stated firmly that he would protect the state’s political structure and resist any interference.
“You cannot work, and people will begin to bring enemies; those who fought you when you were struggling for the person to be in office. Nobody does that. I am not a political ingrate but don’t touch the political structure of the state. I will not shut my eyes,” Wike said.
