Wike, Fubara feud ‘ll soon be resolved, says ex-PDP chair

The immediate past chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers state, Ambassador Desmond Akawor, has said the seeming infighting between Governor Siminialayi Fubara and the Minister of FCT, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, would be resolved soon.

He described the misunderstanding as a normal phenomenon.

Akawor, who spoke when he met with members of the state executive committee and LGA party chairmen of the PDP at the party office in Port Harcourt said presently, bishops and other men of God in the state have waded into the crisis with a view to resolving it.

He added that none of the actors is happy about the situation.

‘We may see the atmosphere in the state as disturbing. No, it is a normal thing in life. It is only what God has done that has perfection.

“There is crisis, but the important thing is the ability to solve the problem. This problem will be settled. Clergymen are intervening. At the end of the day, solution will come,” he said.

The former PDP chairman who blamed those who were not happy with the victory of the PDP in the state and the good relationship between Governor Fubara and Wike for the crisis warned social media groups to stop escalating the situation.

The former Nigerian Ambassador to South Korea who said he never wanted to seek re election after his first term, added that he had conveyed his position to the governor and the minister, especially as the governor and himself were from the same Senatorial district.

He stated further that he had earlier briefed the acting chairman and secretary on his position.

He said he had prayed that another opportunity should come his way, saying when the FCT minister created the opportunity for him by nominating him to the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, he considered it another avenue to serve Rivers people.
