My Problem With Gov Fubara Not Ethnic- Nyesom Wike



Former governor of Rivers State and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr. Nyesom Wike has debunked the insinuation that the problem between him and his successor, Governor Siminalaye Fubara was taking an ethnic dimension.

Wike who broke his silence on Tuesday evening over the brewing crisis in his home state also revealed that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors had stepped in to resolve the matter.

The crisis which has led to burning of the Rivers State House of Assembly has also led to the sack of several top government officials in Rivers State.

Wike in his reaction said, “In politics, there are lot of internal wrangling. But you’re not going to say that because there are lots of internal wrangling, they’re not going to settle among themselves.”

“I was the instrument. I had every power then to say where things should go. When things are wrong, you ask questions. It’s a party affair.

“Parties know how they resolve their own mechanism. It’s not an ethnic affair. Our party is looking into it. That’s what I’ll say. Every politician has his own interests.”

PDP Governors led by their chairman, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State have said that the problem will be resolved amicably.

Among the governors who joined the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) include,  Caleb Muftwang (Plateau), Dauda Lawal (Zamfara), Ahmadu Fintiri (Adamawa), and Ademola Adeleke (Osun).
