The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has accused Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State of dismantling the political structures he laid in the state within three months of assuming office.

Speaking in a media chat with TVC News, Wike said he was instrumental in Fubara’s emergence as governor and had even laid the foundation for his second term by asking him to continue the Ring Road project he inaugurated.

However, he expressed disappointment that Fubara, instead of building on his legacy, chose to destroy the political structures that brought him into power.

Wike further alleged that Fubara sent people to burn the state House of Assembly in an attempt to stop his impeachment. He questioned the rationale behind this action, noting that the impeachment process takes time.

He added that the reason he is keeping calm is because he respects President Tinubu and won’t want to disobey Tinubu’s order.

He said: “We never knew that it will take you three months to scatter the political structure that picked you up. What is painful is seeing these propaganda and lies that I was angry. Did he (Fubara) buy form? Be grateful in your life in all circumstances.

“I will not allow anybody to crumble our political structure. I told him if you do this ring-road your second tenure would be assured, I took him to Germany to meet Julius Berger and they promised to do the road in three years which is the year leading to election. I told him if you do this road nobody will challenge you in Rivers State.

“Anything that will make me disrespect Mr President count me out, he disobeyed the President, disobeyed the Vice President. When the law speaks, thuggery, militancy, and ethnicity will run away.”

Wike’s comments come against the backdrop of a simmering political crisis in Rivers State. The crisis comes just months after the inauguration of Fubara as governor on May 29.
