Wike Loses Key Home Supporter To Fubara As More May Follow Suit


In what appears a gradual dismantling of the political hegemony of the former governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike started on Thursday as the Councillor representing his ward resigned from office and declare support for Governor Sim Fubara.

Wike, who is presently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and the Councillor, Hon Nna both hail from Ward 9, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

In his resignation letter dated March 7, 2024 and addressed to the Clerk of the House, Mrs Rosemary Brown, Nna pointedly declare support for Governor Fubara, who is seen as a political rival to Wike.

Nna, who was the leader of the Legislative Council said that his resignation was borne out of his personal conviction to align with the truth in the face of the current political issues in Rivers State.

In the words of Nna; “I want to align with the progressive minds to liberate and develop Rivers. Let it be known that this resignation will never negate my earlier resolve to work in consonance with President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope.

“My resignation is not unconnected to the unwarranted intimidation, marginalisation, coercion, bullying and arm-twisting from the leaders of the Obio/Akpor Local Government,” he insisted.

The development is seen as a major blow to the political structures of former Governor Wike, who is seen to have taken over the entire political structure in the state.

It is also seen as a major booster for Governor Fubara as other key political actors that were yet to take a firm decision on the matter which the elders of Rivers State found very disturbing on how and why an individual would want to convert the State to his personal property by ensuring that he controls both the administrative and political structures of the State.

It was gathered that the bold move by Hon Nna is most likely going to ginger others that are not comfortable with the crisis in the State to equally dump the political camp of Wike for Fubara, who they opined should be allowed to administer the State peacefully without being arm twisted and dictated to in the performance of his function.
