All Nigeria Latest News reports that the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike, has attributes the escalation of the political crisis in Rivers State to Governor Sim Fubara.

Wike, the former governor of the oil-rich state, has been in a contentious relationship with Fubara.

Despite President Bola Tinubu’s intervention in the crisis, Wike asserts that Fubara’s actions escalated due to a failure to adhere to the agreed-upon resolutions.

“Some of you do not even know that Mr President had invited us privately,” he said in Port Harcourt during a thanksgiving ceremony in honour of the state’s immediate past Commissioner for Works George Kelly Alabo.

“I said: ‘Do this, do this, do this, do this’. And you agreed before Mr President and you did not do it? And Mr President said, ‘Okay, let the larger state come’. We must allow our people the simple things. I’ve done my own part and I’m happy and I’m doing well in Abuja too.

“So, all of us should love this state but leave this propaganda, leave blackmail. There’s nothing I’m looking for in this state now. I have my own budget as FCT minister.

“It’s like a governor of a state. I have my own commissioners. By January, I present my budget before the National Assembly. I will preside over the expenditure. All I’m saying is if you’re a politician, play according to the rules.”
