Siminalayi Fubara, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor of Rivers State, has reigned praises on his predecessor and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister, Nyesom Wike.

The governor, on Thursday, November 9, said that the former governor remained his principal at all times, irrespective of the situation, The Nation reported.

Fubara made the comment at the rededication ceremony of the Rivers State Judiciary's 2023-2024 legal year, in which the minister was in attendance.

Saint Cyprian’s Anglican Church on Hospital Road in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, was the venue for the rededication programme. Governor Fubara then called for peace to reign in the Southeast state, adding that the current political crisis in the state has become history.

According to the governor, the state will experience peace if the players and their supporters work towards peace.

The governor said: “My oga remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody.”

Fubara then warned those endorsing him to stop disparaging his political opponents by using unguarded language, adding that he had never given permission to anyone to do so.
