Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has described his predecessor, Nyesom Wike as his 'oga' boss.

Wike who is currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, and Fubara met in Port Harcourt, when both met for the first time in the state since the political clash.

The past and present Governor were seen at the rededication service of the 2023/2024 Legal Year of the Rivers State Judiciary, held at the Saint Cyprian’s Anglican Church, Hospital Road.

As Fubara was about to begin his speech, he jokingly asked the congregants to suspend the recognition of guests in order not to commit another impeachable offence.

Speaking on the feud with Wike, Fubara described it as a thing of the past and he believe the misunderstanding would pass.

“My oga (boss) remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody,” the Governor said.

Wike who arrived towards the end of the church service, was spotted exchanging pleasantries with his successor Fubara, before sharing a seat with him.

Recall that the lawmakers attempted to impeach Fubara as Governor. This occurred after the House of Assembly was torched. Also, some security agents allegedly shot at the governor while on his way to the Assembly.

Calm was restored to the state after President Bola Tinubu stepped in.
