The executive governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, has fired an indirect warning shot to Nyesom Wike after he vowed never to succumb to intimidation despite the level of sabotage deliberately staged in some quarters to make him abandon the mandate freely given to him to serve, protect, and advance the State.

He said this on Thursday while declaring open the 115 and 116 combined Quarterly General Meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers in Port Harcourt, the State capital.

Recall that there has been a serious political face-off between Fubara and his predecessor, Barrister Nyesom Wike, who is the current minister of the federal capital territory over control of the political structure in the State

The rift between both political buffalos however, led to an attempt to impeach Fubara from office.

Meanwhile, speaking at the event, Fubara said, “Let us not forget that Rivers State is our collective inheritance, presently under my watch, to protect, defend and advance it as the governor.

“I assure you that I will not fail in this responsibility, nor will I surrender our mandate and progress to intimidation, blackmail and deliberate sabotage.

“I reaffirm my earlier statement and recommit myself to the path of peace as there is nothing to gain in a state of needless crisis.”
