Civil Society Group Accuses FCT Minister of Meddling in Rivers State Politics

A civil society group, New Rivers Agenda, has leveled accusations against the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, alleging his interference in Rivers State politics and attempting to wield undue influence.
The group vehemently asserted that Wike’s political maneuvers stem from personal greed, which, they argue, is the root cause of the ongoing crisis in the state.
They said: “Nyesom Wike is afraid of a probe, so he is fighting the governor. He knew how he ran the state down and siphoned resources of the state for eight years. He also left a heavy debt burden on the state.”
According to the group, the people of Rivers State did not err in their choice of Governor Siminalayi Fubara, whom they believe has brought positive changes to the state.
In a statement released to Naija News on Sunday, the president of New Rivers Agenda, Johnson Zinaka, emphasized that Fubara’s leadership has liberated the people from what they perceive as Wike’s oppressive regime.
He said, “Rivers people didn’t make a mistake in choosing Sim Fubara as governor. The governor is doing exploits, and the people are happy with his performance. He took the bull by the horns to free Rivers people from the Nyesom Wike bondage that has seen state resources end up in private pockets.”
“We all know what the crisis is about in the state. It is about the greed of an individual elected to play God in the affairs of the state. The former governor, Nyesom Wike, is bitter because Governor Siminalayi Fubara has the interest of the people at heart in the development of the state.
“What the Rivers people experienced in the eight years of Nyesom Wike can be best described as years of intimidation, oppression, and harassment. Under Wike, it’s either his way or the highway. He was such a brutal man who cornered the resources of the state for himself and his cronies.”
