Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has slammed Governor of Rivers state, Siminalayi Fubara for allegedly pretending to be humble in order to win election.

The Former Governor of Rivers State expressed regret for helping Fubara to take over from him in running the affairs of the oil-rich state.

Wike spoke in Port Harcourt, over the weekend, while addressing a crowd of supporters, where he said Fubara displayed a high level of pretence and deceived him to work towards him becoming the governor.

He called out the governor for being hypocritical by wanting to be independent of any godfather while refusing to allow the state assembly function independently.

Wike said it was after helping Fubara to win election at the polls and in courts that he began to act funny and make spurious allegations.

The FCT minister said: “You said State Assembly people should not be independent, but you want to be independent. Continue to be independent. Continue to save the democracy of Nigeria.

If they like, let them do as they’re doing; if they get to any court they have in the state, let them continue. Let them continue. We’ll never be intimidated by that. So let nobody be afraid. Every day, they say they’re doing thanksgiving. They were lucky they didn’t show this early.

When we’ve finished winning for them, from polling units to tribunal, from tribunal to court of appeal, they now came saying we want to remove them at Supreme Court. Can you imagine? That’s how they collect money from them. They appointed somebody as a judicial consultant. Shame, shame, shame.”
