Prince Uche Secondus and Nyesom Wike

Amidst the swirling political tensions in Rivers State, former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has thrown accusations at the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, alleging him to be the architect behind the current charged political atmosphere in the state.

Secondus, in the wake of Wike’s ongoing feud with Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, claimed that the FCT minister has been orchestrating a campaign to destabilize the state. According to Secondus, Wike’s motive stems from Governor Fubara’s efforts to safeguard the state’s finances, thereby blocking Wike’s access to its coffers.

Accusing Wike of orchestrating media attacks against Governor Fubara and other state leaders, Secondus labeled these actions as “unwarranted and diversionary,” aiming to sabotage the peace and progress of Rivers State.

In response, Wike refuted the allegations, stating that he has never demanded worship from Governor Fubara or anyone else. He reiterated his commitment to serve the people of Rivers State, emphasizing that he respects and appreciates the support he has received from them.
