The Governor of Rivers state, Sim Fubara, has claimed that his predecessor Nyesom Wike remains his “oga”
Fubara stated this while speaking during the rededication service of the 2023/2024 Legal Year of the Rivers State Judiciary with Wike in attendance.
He 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 that 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 what is most important is 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.
Wike and Fubara were recently involved in a face-off over some unfulfillable promises.
The squabble led to the state House of Assembly moving to impeach Fubara.
Following interventions, the governor had apologized to the minister who is his predecessor
