Wike: Intimidation Has Expiry Date – Fubara Says Amid Rivers Crisis

Posted by Thandiubani on Mon 13th May, 2024 - tori.ng

Fubara’s declaration comes amid his continued face-off with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

 
Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has sent a message to FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike as the two continue fighting over control of the state.
 
Fubara stated that intimidation has a time frame and it expires at the right time.
  
Since October 30, 2023, Rivers State has been embroiled in a political crisis.
 
The crisis became public knowledge following an explosion that shook the hallowed chamber of the State Assembly complex on the night of October 29, 2023.
 
Following the fire incident, the state lawmakers initiated an impeachment process against Fubara and suspended four lawmakers.
 
This incident has left the state Assembly deeply divided, with 27 lawmakers aligning with Wike while three remained loyal to Governor Fubara (after the resignation of one, Edison Ehie, who now serves as the Chief-of-Staff to him.
 
In an attempt to quell the crisis, President Bola Tinubu had in December 2023, intervened in the crisis, leading to the formulation of an eight-point resolution signed by Fubara and Wike.
 
However, this peace pact had failed to quell the unrest in the state.
 
Over the weekend, Wike and Fubara had thrown some jabs at each other in the renewed cold war.
 
Speaking at the state’s Government House in Port Harcourt, Fubara said: “Intimidation has a time, and when it expires, it’s over. Even in the bible, Pharaoh intimidated the children of Israel, but it got to a time; the intimidation did not work again.
 
“Every bad thing that has a beginning has an end. Don’t worry about me – we have kept that behind; we are looking at the future.”
