Time will tell who is Rivers’ leader, ex-gov Wike taunts gov fubara

Nyesom Wike, the former Governor of Rivers State and current Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, made a significant statement amidst the ongoing political turmoil in Rivers, asserting, “We’ll know who is in charge when the time comes.”

Wike’s comment comes on the heels of his unexpected visit to Chief Victor Giadom, the National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Speculations of political realignment have surfaced, especially considering the strained relationship between Wike and the current Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

The visit to Giadom’s country home in Bera, Gokana Local Government Area, has triggered discussions about potential shifts in political alliances. Giadom, who was Commissioner for Works under former Governor Rotimi Amaechi, welcomed Wike, expressing satisfaction at mending fences with his estranged friend.

In a video circulating on social media, Wike confidently asserted that the true leadership would be evident in due time. He downplayed the significance of social media in determining political dynamics, stating, “Forget about these hungry noisemakers on the road. When the time comes, we will know who is in charge and who is not in charge.”

Wike emphasized the need for a direct connection with the people, stating that elections are not won on social media but by engaging with the electorate. He addressed the ongoing political situation in Rivers State, where lawmakers loyal to the Minister served an impeachment notice to Governor Fubara. The intervention of President Bola Tinubu led to the withdrawal of the impeachment notice by lawmakers who defected to the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party.

During the visit, Wike clarified that his presence at Giadom’s residence was a private visit and should not be misconstrued as a political maneuver. He stated, “I came here to visit my friend, Giadom. Let nobody misinterpret why I came here. That is why I came with PDP and APC leaders. It is a private visit to my friend.”

Wike commended Giadom’s political relevance and highlighted the significance of positively impacting people in politics. He expressed the enduring nature of friendships beyond political affiliations, acknowledging mistakes but emphasizing the importance of shared
