Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has said that his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, remains his principal. Fubara made the remarks on Thursday at the rededication service of the 2023/2024 Legal Year of the Rivers State Judiciary.
He said: “My oga remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past.”
The governor said that the recent political crisis in the state was a thing of the past and that he was committed to delivering on the promises he made to the people during his campaign. He also warned those pledging support for him to stop using abusive words on perceived opponents.
“I have not sent anybody to malign anybody.”
Recall that Fubara and Wike were recently at loggerheads over the state’s 2023 budget. However, the two leaders have since reconciled.
Fubara’s statement that Wike remains his principal is a significant development. It suggests that the two leaders have put their differences aside and are working together to move the state forward.
