The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Mr Tony Okocha, has described Governor Siminalayi Fubara as the political investment of the current FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

Okocha, speaking on Channels Television’s “Politics Today,” harped on Wike’s pivotal role as Fubara’s mentor and credited him for the governor’s political elevation.

Okocha also dwelled on the support Wike provided for Fubara’s journey from civil servant to the governorship candidate of the party, culminating in an unprecedented victory in all 23 local government areas of Rivers State.

“The feud between the governor and his mentor, Governor Fubara, is Wike’s political investment,” Okocha stated.

He added: “From civil servant to the candidate of a party and delivering him in 23 local governments out of 23, the first in our history, all of these were Wike’s ability to manoeuvre.

“The former governor has said, ‘I am not asking you for anything. I am only saying that you are destroying the structure that produced you.’ If you are a politician, no politician will allow his structure to be dismantled.

“When you do that, it means that you have no home to fall back to. That is the issue.”
