‘He showed his true colour after we won election for him’ – Wike slams Fubara


Former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has again expressed regret for helping Siminalayi Fubara to become the governor of the oil-rich state.

Wike, while addressing a crowd of supporters, in Port Harcourt over the weekend, said the governor displayed a high level of pretence and deceived him [Wike] to work towards him becoming the governor.

Wike has been at daggers-drawn with his successor, Governor Fubara for many months now and their faceoff appears a long way from resolution.


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.”
