My rift with Fubara not about money, but about political structure – Wike


Former Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has reacted to speculations that the feud with his successor, Governor Siminalayi Fubara stemmed from financial demands.

Wike while tagging the rumour of money ‘rubbish’, noted that the crisis is about political structure he built in Rivers.

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) vowed that nobody can touch the political structure in Rivers State.

He said, “About the rumours of money; all that is rubbish. I just left office a few months ago and I am now the FCT minister. So, which money?

‘’But nobody can take away our political structure, no one.  I have listened to them and for me, you cannot work and people will begin to bring enemies, those who fought you; nobody does that.’’

The ex-governor cautioned those peddling alleged rumours and lies on social media, stating that he had “the capacity to fight back.”

He added, “I am not a political ingrate, but don’t touch the political structure in Rivers State; I will not shut my eyes. Forget about the Obidients and the Atikulates, who have lost, who felt I did not support them and those whom I revoked their C of O (Certificate of Occupancy).

“Wike did this and that because I did not support their presidential candidates; all those things I am not perturbed, I will only do what is right.”
