Na’ibi Abubakar triumphantly pronounced tthat Nyesom Wike’s political clout was now virtually non-existent, with his erstwhile authority diminished following the emergence of the court’s decision.

With the current situation of things in and around Rivers State politics lately, it can be correct to say Governor Siminalayi Fubara has finally gotten his footing on the ground as the rightful custodian of the people’s mandate, who is constitutionally the chief accounting officer to be as

ked about the running of affairs of the state from May 29, 2023 till the end of his tenure(s).

This observation was further strengthened Thursday by a statement posted via the X social media network handleq of Abdul-Aziz Na’ibi Abubakar, a Media Aide to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election.

In the short statement, Na’ibi Abubakar made comments that tended to admit Fubara’s physical and on-the-ground victory when he said he had repeatedly warned Wike that Governor Fubara would soon end his political career.

He took delight in announcing that recent developments, including the declaration of 25 seats in the Rivers Assembly as vacant by the Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, had only further validated his claims.

He triumphantly pronounced tthat Nyesom Wike’s political clout was now virtually non-existent, with his erstwhile authority diminished following the emergence of the court’s decision.

Wike had always been certain that he would have the last laugh while assuring his self-sacked 25 loyal state lawmakers and commissioners that voluntarily resigned from the administration not to despair as he apologised to them over what he called his mistake of choosing wrong candidate as governor and promised them that solution would come soon.

The former Governor, who already had his eight years in office but seen as dragging the new tenure of his successor with his to be able to call the shots in the government he has no constitutional rights to control, is believed to have been domineering over Fubara administration.

This was said to be evident in revelations of the number of House of Assembly members he caused to defect to All Progressives Congress (APC) thinking that with President Bola Tinubu behind him as his professed closest ally and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), they would have their way.

The straw that broke the camel’s back hit him when President Tinubu’s position was made explicit clear by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, who said whoever of the warring parties thought he would back him would only be joking.

Although a reported news analysis later punctured the Ngelale’s presidential statement, saying Tinubu was secretly fueling the Rivers political crisis by giving Fubara the liver to confront Wike in order to take him out of relevance ahead 2027, being the only Southern candidate he believes can challenge him.

Atiku’s media aide Na’ibi Abubakar, taking a cognizant look at the Rivers development lately, made an expression of admittance about imminent retirement of Nyesom Wike from politics giving credit for that to Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

According to Abdul-Aziz Na’ibi Abubakar, “I have told Wike several times that Gov. Sim Fubara will retire him from politics, now that Court has declared 25 Rivers Assembly seats vacant, tell me what is left for Wike? He is now irrelevant!”
