Rivers Fued: Fubara berates political opponents, crowns himself winner



Rivers crisis resolved as Fubara, Wike team reaches eight-point resolutions

Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has crowned himself the victor of the state’s conflict.

He claimed that people behind the crisis wanted him out of power and that because he is still in control, he is the winner, while those who opposed him failed.

Chronicle NG reports that the governor has been having a running battle with the camp of his predecessor and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.
The scenario caused a schism in the state House of Assembly, with Wike supporters submitting an impeachment petition against the governor.
Members loyal to Fubara later declared their seats vacant after defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.

President Bola Tinubu later intervened in the situation, resulting in the retraction of the governor’s impeachment notice, among other decisions.

However, speaking at a crossover church service at St. Paul’s Archdeaconry Parish in Opobo Town, Opobo/Nkoro Local Government Area, the governor said that he had won the battle because he was still the governor.

Addressing the congregation, Fubara said, “I want to urge every one of us here: don’t be frightened. What they want is this red biro, but it is still with me; they have failed.

“You are the winner; we are the winners because we are still signing with the red biro, and so long as we are signing with the red biro, development will continue in Rivers State.

“2024 will witness unprecedented heights in our state; the only thing we are asking from every one of you is your support, prayers, and belief in every decision that we take. We are not going to throw any of you under the bus.”
