A viral video shows the chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers state, Samuel Nwanosike openly raining insults on Governor Siminalayi Fubara.
The video which was posted on Nwanosike’s official handle on the microblogging platform X, shows him accusing Fubara of being naive while addressing his supporters at Omerelu Community.
Nwanosike, a known loyalist of former governor Nyesom Wike, alleged that Fubara had 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.”
“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”.Nwanosike on Fubara
A political crisis brewing in the state was said to have been resolved by President Tinubu. However, recent comments by loyalists of Wike towards Fubara have been very disparaging and suggesting there may exist a fresh political crisis.
A recent remark by the speaker of the State Assembly, Rt. Hon. Martins Amaewhule on Fubara was a subtle warning, showing very little regards for the exalted office.
