Governor Similanayi Fubara of Rivers State has described the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, as his boss.
He spoke Thursday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, during the rededication service of the 2023/2024 legal year of the Rivers state judiciary.
Wike, the immediate past governor of the state, was present at the church service.
Fubara said the recent political happenings in the state belonged to the past and urged residents to relax.
“My oga (referring to Wike) remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past. I want us to continue to pray for the peace and development of this state. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody,” he said.
Daily Trust reports that the relationship between Wike and Fubara went sour less than six months after handover.
The crisis reached its height a few days ago when the chamber of the State House of Assembly was set ablaze and the subsequent move to impeach the governor.
Fubara had stormed the Complex alongside his supporters, vowing to fight the impeachment threat.
President Bola Tinubu had waded into the crisis by summoning the duo who are of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to Aso Rock.
