A former spokesman of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala has slammed Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Terroritory.


Speaking on Wednesday, Bwala accused the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, of subjecting Rivers State Governor Sim Fubara to intense harassment.


Bwala said Fubara has never been the aggressor in the face-off with Wike, stressing that the governor had to resort to self-defence.


Posting on X, Bwala wrote: “Gov. Fubara @SimFubaraKSC has never been the aggressor; he was subjected to intense harassment by minister @GovWike who goes to Portharcourt every weekend to harass him; until Sim Fubara decided to react in exercise of self defense. Just to set the record.”


Fubara and Wike have been at loggerheads over the political control of Rivers State.


The rift between the duo has affected the legislative arm of the state, leading to the defections of state Assembly members and emergence of factional Speakers.


Despite a presidential intervention, Fubara recently claimed that the state was overburdened by the debt left behind by Wike.


To this end, the governor vowed to probe Wike’s administration.
