Wike holds banquet in Port Harcourt amidst Rivers crisis

Former governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, held a banquet to celebrate with his political allies in his country home yesterday.

The gathering had in attendance top political actors across the state who were loyal to Wike.

Those in attendance were majorly local government chairmen, members of the State House of Assembly, and former commissioners loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Also in attendance were, chief Samuel Ortom, former governor of Benue State. Ortom is a member of the G- 5 governors who are also members of the PDP that withdrew their support for Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential flag bearer of the PDP in the last general election.

Recall that former governor Wike in the last few months has been in political disagreement with his successor, Gov Fubara. Wike accused Gov Fubara of trying to destroy the structure that brought him into power.

According to reports from social media, the banquet yesterday was the first time the common citizens could easily access the house of the former governor as he kept his gate wide open for all and sundry to attend. Netizens cited that the former governor is now looking for supporters as many people have thrown their support to the current Governor Fubara.

The political wranglings led to the Assembly Members loyal to Wike plotting an impeachment attempt to remove Fubara from office, a development Wike confirmed on Channels TV as being the mastermind.

The local government chairmen, former commissioners, and some members of the State Assembly present at the meeting reaffirmed their unalloyed loyalty to Mr Wike.

The host, Mr Wike who spoke extensively, assured his friends and loyalists that their decision to stand by him amidst the political saga will not be regretted. Further in his speech, he urged them not to panic as a time to celebrate their decisions is near.
