Siminalayi Fubara, Rivers State Governor, has stated that Nyesom Wike, his predecessor and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, remains his principal.

Fubara made this known during the rededication ceremony for the Rivers State Judiciary’s 2023–2024 legal year, which both Fubara and Wike attended at the Saint Cyprian’s Anglican Church in the state capital.

In his address, Governor Fubara said;

“My oga remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody.”

Fubara issued a warning to his supporters, urging them not to resort to offensive language against his opponents. He emphasized that he had not granted permission for any disparaging remarks.

The encounter at the church service marked the first public appearance of the two politicians since the outbreak of the recent political controversy. Nyesom Wike, exchanged handshakes with his successor and sat beside him throughout the event.
