Rivers: Fubara Only Popular Because He’s Anti-wike Says Amaechi by InfoGuru118: 1:48pm On Jun 09
Rotimi Amaechi, former minister of transportation, says he will not take sides in the rivalry between Siminalayi Fubara, the governor of Rivers, and Nyesom Wike.

Fubara succeeded Nyesom Wike, who is the current minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), as governor in May 2023.

He was the accountant-general under Wike and had his support during the governorship election, but both men fell off shortly after Fubara assumed office.

News360 Nigeria reports that the rift between Fubara and Wike has polarised the Rivers house of assembly.

In December 2023, 27 members of the assembly loyal to Wike defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking when he paid a visit to Okorinama West, a leader of the APC in Port Harcourt on Friday, Amaechi, who was also governor of the state from 2007 to 2015, said he would not support either Fubara or Wike.

Amaechi further said Fubara is only popular because of the public exchanges with Wike over political domination in Rivers.

“…a lot of our supporters that can’t stand hunger have joined either Sim or Wike. I will not join them. I will not join Sim, I will not join Wike,” he said.

“But don’t forget, they are not big without you people, I hope you know that. No big man is big without the grassroots’ support. And if you look at the Rivers state political followership, we have more people singing our praises than singing even Sim.

“What Sim thinks is popularity today is because he is anti-Wike. That is his popularity, not that Sim is the best man that has happened on earth. It is because he is anti-Wike and it is because the state is tired of Wike.”

Wike, who served as a chief of staff to Amaechi and succeeded him, is also said to have built his popularity as a result of his face-off with his predecessor.

Both politicians fell out after Amaechi defected to the APC and supported Muhammadu Buhari for president in 2015, while Wike, a governorship candidate of the PDP then, supported Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid.

I thought Rivers people love Wike, or are they getting tired of him?

There is no one on earth that became popular in vacuum. It's circumstance that throw people up for popularity and leadership.

I don't agree entirely with Amaechi.

Fubara is extremely popular especially with the civil servants.


The 100k he gave them last December and other payments and promotions endeared him to the people.

But I agree that a lot of people love Sim because they are anti Wike.

I want Amaechi to remain relevant in politics. That man has big plans for this country. Amaechi is a strategic administrator. I want him to return to PDP and contest for Senate.

The only challenge is that he may find it difficult to win because he was foolishly fighting his people to please his bosses in APC. I hope his people have forgiven him.

Tinubu became popular for being anti Obasanjo


Atiku became popular because he was anti Obasanjo.


Rotimi Amaechi became popular because he was anti Goodluck Jonathan.


Buhari became popular because he is anti Christian and pro-Fulani


Adams Oshiomhole became popular because as NLC President, he was anti Obasanjo government.


Wike became popular because he was anti Buhari and anti Oshiomhole during Edo election.

Wole Soyinka won Nobel Prize and became popular for using his playwrights to criticize Nigeria's Military Juntas.


So if Fubara can become popular by being anti Wike, that will add to his political credential in Nigeria

100% truth. Nobody knows that guy called Sim if not for Wike. He may not even win local government chairman position if not for wike.
Go check his X. Don't even have up to 80k followers.
He only become popular because many hate Wike for not supporting their fake Messiah called Obi..

Let Fubara conduct LG elections in Rivers state if you think Civil servants are with him.
