In a recent interview in Abuja, Nyesom Wike, the former governor of Rivers and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), openly criticized Governor Siminalayi Fubara, labelling him an ingrate.

The rift between Wike and Fubara surfaced shortly after the handover, escalating when the State House of Assembly chamber was set ablaze, culminating in an attempt to impeach the governor.

The public spat between Wike and Fubara has added fuel to an already tense political climate in Rivers State. The accusations of ingratitude, coupled with the specter of impeachment, have heightened emotions and polarized political allegiances. As the state grapples with these tensions, the public is left to ponder the implications of such a rift on governance, stability, and the overall well-being of the people.

In the wake of Wike’s scathing critique, Governor Fubara has not remained silent. Responding to the accusations of ingratitude, Fubara refutes the claims, asserting that his administration is focused on the welfare of the people and that the political tensions are a result of differing ideologies rather than any personal animosity. The back-and-forth between the former and current governors sets the stage for a protracted battle of narratives.

Wike, addressing journalists, expressed his disdain for ingratitude. He cited a quote from Odili’s book, emphasizing how revealing one’s character becomes when empowered with authority and wealth.

Despite leaving behind commissioned projects for Fubara’s hundred-day showcase, politics intervened. Wike expressed his frustration, stating, “We are just starting; God gave you something, and now you are importing a crisis.”

Wike accused Fubara of creating unnecessary turmoil by highlighting the absence of federal interference. He challenged those supporting the ongoing situation, suggesting that only natural ingrates would endorse such actions. Wike asserted his commitment to using legal means to combat challenges, emphasizing a distinction from engaging with thugs.

As the political tension unfolds, Wike’s critique sheds light on the strained relationship, leaving the future of Rivers State in uncertainty.
