The minister of the federal capital territory (FCT),Nyesom Wike has again opened up about the political crisis in Rivers state.
Former Governor of Rivers state disclosed this during media media parley in Abuja on Friday,said Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, is “trying to create” a political crisis for himself.
“Let me tell you — I don’t like ingrates. I can’t stand it. What is happening now (in Rivers) is what Odili said in his book: ‘Give a man power and money, then you will know the person.’ If you haven’t given a man power and money then you don’t know the person,” Wike said.
“However, I’m not worried because I am a politician. I know what other states are suffering because of debt. But go (to Rivers) and check if I had liabilities, the records are there.
“I left projects for him to commission so he would showcase during his hundred days, then politics came in. We are just starting. God gave you something, you are now importing crisis.
“God gave this (power) on a platter of gold, no crisis. The federal government is not fighting you, nobody at home is fighting you. You are the one trying to create a crisis for yourself.
“What kind of system is that? Who does that? Only ingrates that (it) is in their blood that will support what is happening there (in Rivers). Only those who are natural ingrate.”
Wike who is the immediate former governor of Rivers and Fubara, his successor, have been at loggerheads over the control of the political structure in the state.
The crisis between the two politicians heightened last month, culminating in an attempted impeachment of Fubara.
Despite President Bola Tinubu’s reported intervention to restore peace in the state, there are speculations that the political crisis is far from being resolved.
Early this month, Wike said he would do all it takes to maintain his “political structure” in the state.
“Nobody can take away the political structure in Rivers. Nobody can intimidate me. If I want to do something, I will do it. The impeachment is not a military coup, it is provided under the constitution,” Wike had said.
