Cause of Wike, Rivers Gov’s crisis — Fubara’s CoS


Edison Ehie, Chief of Staff to Rivers Governor Siminalayi Fubara, has rendered purported, insider information of what soured his principal and the predecessor and godfather, Nyesom Wike’s relationship.

Ehie made the revelation at a thanksgiving service on Saturday for the Supreme Court victory of the governor in Ahoada East Local Government Area of the state.

The Chief of Staff said Fubara and the Federal Capital Territory minister fell out over control of the State’s resources.

“The problem we have in the state is that 11 persons said they will control the resources of Rivers State. These 11 persons now called 20 others to allocate resources to themselves,” he alleged.

He also stated that Fubara would defeat Wike politically saying, “We are going to teach them a lesson of political arithmetic. What that small boy will do to you you’ll know that khaki no be leather.”
