Tinubu’s move to end Wike and Fubara’s rift has collapsed – APC Chairman

Wike Fubara

Tony Okocha, caretaker committee chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State has revealed that the rift between the state governor, Simi Fubara and FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, has spiralled out of control after President Bola Tinubu’s effort to resolve it collapsed. 

Okocha who addressed a press conference at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, December 14, also stated that the four members of the state House of Assembly led by the factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, who sat and passed the budget presented to them by Governor Fubara for the 2024 fiscal year are dwelling on illegality, and their action will not stand.

The APC Chairman further revealed that they are wooing Wike to defect to the party and that as soon as he becomes a member of the ruling party, he will become the party’s leader in the state.

Okocha said; 

“I wasn’t part of it, but whatever that was, has broken down, and it has been broken irreconcilably.”
