Rivers crisis: I’ll continue to hit them hard – Fubara to Wike’s camp


Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has vowed to keep the camp of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike restless.

Fubara issued the warning while declaring the purported list of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caretaker Committee members for the State circulating on social media as fake.

There has been crisis in Rivers since Fubara fell out with Wike who is his predecessor.

However, speaking at the ground breaking of automobile spare parts market in Port Harcourt, on Thursday, Fubara described the list, which has the names of some Wike’s loyalists, as the handiwork of cheap publicity seekers and agents of crisis.

According to Fubara: “I know that a lot of you saw something flying on social media, dailies.

“Let me brief you, we hard a meeting, and we agreed that, not just in Rivers State, but in all the states affected, that the Executive Councils (of PDP) should be extended for three months.

“This extension is not meant to bring in new names. The extension also did not say that you are working without the authority of the Governor.

“So, for those lists that you saw and those ones altered, I can assure you that they are not going to stand.

“For record purposes, so that you will understand, we also agreed that there is going to be a NEC meeting on the 18th of this month (April) that should ratify that decision.

“So, what you are seeing is the handiwork of desperate people who like media publicity. In fact, empty drums make loudest noise. So, don’t bother about anything. Nothing is happening.

“You can see how restless they have been since I made just one statement, yesterday. We will continue to make them restless.

“They won’t know where we are coming from. We will also continue to hit them hard the way we hit them, yesterday.

“So, those of you who were worried when you saw those lists that were flying, go and rest, nothing is happening.”
