I’m Sorry for Insulting Gov Fubara, ‘I Regret My Actions’, Rivers LGA Chairman, Nwanosike Apologizes
Samuel Nwanosike, the Chairman of Ikwere Local Government Area of Rivers State who last week hauled insults on the Rivers State Governor, Siminilaye Fubara in a viral social media video has apologized to the governor saying that he “regrets” his actions.
Nwanosike, a staunch supporter and kinsman of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike had at a rally cursed out Governor Fubara, saying the governor was “foolish” and “naïve.”
“Governor Fubara is very naive. He does not know what governance is all about,” Nwanosike had said while he supporters urged him on.
However, in yet another video that has surfaced on the internet, Nwanosike is seen begging for forgiveness saying that his “leader,” Nyesom Wike had “called him to order.”
“I want to tell the world that my leader after my outburst at my last rally at Omerulu Community, called me to order by saying ‘it is wrong for you to speak to a Governor in that manner whether he’s 18 years old.
“I want to tender an unreserved apology to the people of Nigeria for speaking in that manner and to say clearly that I regret that action and it (was) led by anger,” Mr Nwanosike said in the new video.
Governor Fubara has been locked in supremacy battle with his former boss and immediate past governor of the State, Nyesom Wike whom many see as unduly interfering with the governance of Rivers State despite the fact that he now a minister under the All Progressives Congress (APC) Federal Government of President Bola Tinubu.
Nwanosike has been described as Mr. Wike’s major attack dog who has been seen in several for a hauling insults on the Rivers State governor, Fubara “in defence” of Wike.
