Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State on Wednesday lashed out at the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, for accusing him of renting crowds for thanksgiving.

Wike made the remark while expressing regrets for helping Fubara to become the governor of the oil-rich state.

Addressing a crowd of supporters, Wike had said Fubara displayed a high level of pretext which deceived him to work towards making him his successor.

Wike has been at daggers-drawn with Fubara and their face-off appears a long away from resolution, even after a peace deal brokered by President Bola Tinubu.

Speaking while receiving members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, who were on a solidarity rally at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Fubara said the large number of people proves the nature of the “organic support his administration has continued to enjoy from the people of the state”.

“Some days ago, somebody said we are busy renting crowds for thanksgiving.

“But what I have seen here today is not different from what is happening at those thanksgiving rallies. People are just appreciating God and good governance,” he said.
