Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, says Nyesom Wike, his predecessor, remains his principal.

Fubara spoke on Thursday during the rededication service of the 2023/2024 legal year of the Rivers state judiciary.

The service was held at Saint Cyprian Anglican Church, Port Harcourt, the state capital.

Wike, the minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), was present at the church service.

When the FCT minister walked into the church auditorium, he walked up to the front row, where the governor was already seated.

The two politicians shook hands and the former governor sat beside Fubara in the front pew.

In his speech, Fubara said the recent political events in the state belonged to the past and urged residents to relax.

The Rivers governor said there is a need for the state to have peace to achieve growth and development.

“My oga (referring to Wike) remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past,” he said.

“I want us to continue to pray for the peace and development of this state. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody.”

Over the past few weeks, there has been tension in Rivers state over the alleged feud between Fubara and Wike.

In the wake of the crisis, the Rivers house of assembly commenced impeachment proceedings against the governor.

But the supporters of Fubara kicked against the impeachment move by the state house of assembly.

On October 29, a section of the Rivers house of assembly complex was gutted by fire.

There were speculations that the fire incident was orchestrated to prevent the lawmakers from initiating impeachment proceedings against Fubara.
