Local Government Chairman Rains Insults On Governor Fubara

By Damilare Adeleye

A fresh political crisis seems to be looming in Rivers State as the Chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state, Samuel Nwanosike, rained heavy insults on Governor Siminalayi Fubara of the state.

In a viral video posted on his official X handle, the council chairman, who was addressing his supporters at Omerelu Community, accused Fubara of being naive.

Recall that Fubara and his predecessor who is currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, fell out in 2023 over a battle of supremacy in the state.

The LG Chairman, who is loyal to Wike, alleged that Fubara has not achieved anything as governor of the state since he took over the mantle of leadership from Wike on May 29, 2023.

He said, “Any day the likes of Chijioke sent by Fubara insults Wike, I’ll insult Fubara, so today, Fubara is a foolish Governor, he’s not a ‘mumu’ Governor but a foolish Governor because since he took office in May 29th, he has done nothing for Rivers people.”

Nwanosike further maintained that the allegation that Wike wanted to pocket Rivers State is far from the truth, saying Fubara “is very naive and doesn’t know what governance is all about. If he knows what governance is all about, by now, he would have been visiting Rivers State by the local government.

“Go and look at Igirita roundabout by Igirita market by Eleka Road; deathtrap, can’t move. Kidnapping everywhere in Rivers State and you say you’re a Governor.”
