Rivers crisis: My oga remains my oga – Fubara speaks on rival with Wike


Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has insisted that the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike remains his boss.

Fubara spoke during the rededication service of the 2023/2024 Legal Year of the Rivers State Judiciary, which Wike also attended.

Speaking at the event held at the Saint Cyprian’s Anglican Church, Hospital Road in the state capital, the governor described the recent political crisis in the state as a thing of the past.

According to Fubara, “My oga remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody.”

He said although it has been a trying time for the state, the current phase of political misunderstanding will pass and the promises his administration made to the people will be delivered.

The governor also warned those pledging support for him to stop using abusive words on perceived opponents, saying that he did not authorise them to malign anybody.

According to him, in trying to attain development, the devil will always attack but that is what is most important to “identify the devil and push it out”.

It was the first time the two politicians who were the major characters in the recent political fight would be meeting each other in public in the state.

DAILY POST reported that Wike and Fubara were recently involved in a face-off over some unfulfilled promises.

The squabble led to the state House of Assembly moving to impeach Fubara.

Following interventions, the governor apologized to the minister who is his predecessor
