An activist, Aisha Yesufu, says Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, is more reliable than his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

Lately, the face-off between Fubara and Wike, who is the incumbent Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has thrown the state into chaos.

Some Local Government Chairmen, who are Wike’s loyalists and expected to vacate their offices on Monday following the expiration of their tenure, were reportedly attacked by some youths on Tuesday when they attempted to gain access to their offices.

Police operatives in Rivers State reportedly shot sporadically in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Tuesday .

The council chairmen, who are Wike’s loyalists, claimed that the state House of Assembly had extended their tenure by six months.

Aisha Yesufu, in her reaction to the Rivers crisis in a post on her X handle, deplored the FCT Minister over his alleged involvement in the ongoing crisis in the state.

Yesufu said President Bola Tinubu would rather have a deal with Fubara than Wike, saying that the FCT Minister no longer has any relevance to Rivers State’s political structure.

She wrote, “Wike thought he was smart and decided to dine with the devil not knowing he was on the menu.

“A powerless Wike is a great asset to Tinubu and Tinubu will ensure every power that Wike has is stripped so he becomes a proper errand boy that can be controlled completely.

“Without the structure of Rivers State, Wike is a haggard old politician and I bet you Tinubu will rather have a deal with Fubara than Wike”, Aisha noted.
