Wike regrets backing Fubara’s governorship, accuses him of deception

Nyesom Wike, the former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory has voiced remorse over his support for Siminalayi Fubara‘s governorship bid in the oil-rich state.

Addressing a gathering of supporters in Port Harcourt over the weekend, Wike lamented Fubara’s alleged pretense and deception, stating that he was misled into backing Fubara’s candidacy for governor.

The rift between Wike and his successor, Governor Fubara, has persisted for several months, showing no signs of reconciliation in the near future.

Ranting at the occasion, Wike said: “You (Fubara) said State Assembly people should not be independent, but you want to be independent. Continue to be independent. Continue to save the democracy of Nigeria. If they like, let them do as they’re doing; if they get to any court they have in the state, let them continue. Let them continue.

“We’ll never be intimidated by that. So let nobody be afraid. Every day, they say they’re doing thanksgiving. They were lucky they didn’t show this early. When we’ve finished winning for them, from polling units to tribunal, from tribunal to court of appeal, they now came saying we want to remove them at Supreme Court.

“Can you imagine? That’s how they collect money from them. They appointed somebody as a judicial consultant. Shame, shame, shame.”
