FCT Minister, Wike Finally Opens Up On Rift Between Him And Gov. Fubara

Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has declared that he and his successor, Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State, are now in different political camps.

Wike made the comment on Tuesday during a live media chat held with selected journalists in Abuja.

His words: “You know I have decided not to bother myself about politics, but on the assignment, President Bola Tinubu gave to me. I didn’t go home for Easter. Why do you people think I have a hold on the assembly?”

He denied instigating the impeachment threats against Fubara.

Still, he said the governor’s problem lingered with the State House of Assembly because he did not keep to the agreements he had with them when President Tinubu intervened to resolve their differences.

He also queried why Fubara refused to re-present the 2024 budget after the court had invalidated an earlier budget he presented.

He asked rhetorically: “What is it in the budget that you don’t want to present?”

Wike further hinted that some persons within the state who were seen as elder politicians lacked integrity.

He added: “Amaechi and Omehia are cousins. It was Amaechi who removed his picture. When I became a governor, I put his picture there. But all of them teamed up to support Atiku. Of course, what happened? They couldn’t give Atiku 10 per cent votes. We flogged them mercilessly.

“They are the same people who said this governor was a neophyte. They wrote a petition when this governor was to collect his certificate. They told Ayu that he was being looked for by the EFCC.”

He added that those people who did not support Fubara initially but started frolicking with him should also take up the responsibility of resolving the conflict between Fubara and the House of Assembly.
