There are strong indications that Governor of Rivers state Nyesom Wike and his political son and Governor elect of Rivers state Sim Fubara are both engaged in a Cold War over invitation for his inauguration as Governor of Rivers state come May 29th 2023.
According to AIF Media the outgoing governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike has fallen out with the Governor-elect, Sim Fubara.
A source told AIF Media that Wike is fuming that Fubara invited Atiku and other PDP leaders considered to be his enemies to the May 29 inauguration at Portharcourt without his consent.
The source said that when confronted, Fubara told his close aides that he wouldn’t want to inherit the enemies of the outgoing and wouldn’t want to start fighting political wars early.
He opted for reconciliation with the party leaders both at the state and national, which didn’t go down well with the PortHarcourt hit man.
This has created a huge crack between the two and we were told that Wike has withholding releasing funds for the inauguration.
The political battle between Wike and Fubara will be interesting.
