Rivers: Why Gov Fubura Got Into Trouble- Secondus

He emphasized that these attacks could escalate into a national crisis if not adequately addressed.

Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, stated that Governor Similaye Fubura of Rivers State is facing opposition from political adversaries for his efforts to prevent the state’s funds from being misappropriated.

Secondus suggested that the ongoing political turmoil in the state is instigated by individuals who seek unrestricted access to the state’s finances, a demand the governor has resisted.

Speaking in Abuja on Saturday, Secondus also accused the former Governor of Rivers State and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, of orchestrating Fubura’s political challenges. He claimed that Wike’s behavior, statements, and ongoing feud with the governor have portrayed the state negatively.

Secondus said, “Wike has been Governor for eight years and is now Minister of the FCT. As Minister, what, has he (Wike) attracted in terms of Federal projects to our dear State since he assumed office? Perhaps misery, grief, and anguish. As Governor he had supervised the exit of investors from the state due to his draconian policies.

“He had on an occasion mentioned that he is capable of causing crisis and he is not far from the truth, as he is causing an unfathomable crisis in Rivers State.

“Mrs Patience Jonathan and I worked for his emergence as governor, have we ever breathed down his neck? Instead what we get is disrespect and insults.

“ I can attest to Dr. Odili’s performance as Governor being the State PDP chairman then. I hasten to say without any fear of contradiction that he is the best governor of Rivers State in this dispensation.

“Wike claims that our revered Dr. Odili made him but in his characteristic manner, he publicly ridiculed the Odili’s without any justification. He owes them an unreserved apology and he should do so publicly.

“These media attacks against the political leaders of Rivers State are unwarranted and diversionary.

“For the records you should account for the three hundred million dollars($300m) you collected from the NNPC for the Ogoni Oil well and the cash refund made by the Saipem oil and gas company and subsequently account for your eight-year tenure of over N4Trillion realized, mismanaged and squandered. Rather than trying to cover your inadequacies through media attacks.”

He emphasized that these attacks could escalate into a national crisis if not adequately addressed.

While appealing to President Bola Tinubu to reign in the FCT minister, Secondus added, “I call on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to prevail on the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike to stop overheating the Rivers State political atmosphere and allow Fubara to work. Whatever Wike thinks he is It must be stressed that Rivers people made him.”
