The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Nyesom Wike has vowed not to back down in the ongoing power tussle with Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
Recall that Fubara who fell out with Wike, his predecessor, is being impeached by the Rivers State House of Assembly.
Speaker of the Assembly, Martin Amaewhule, who is an ally of Wike, and some other members of the House, had commenced impeachment proceedings against the governor.
Wike’s allies had suspended the Majority Leader of the House, Ehie Edison, who is believed to be Fubara’s loyalist.
Speaking after the governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, met over the crisis in Abuja on Tuesday, Wike insisted that the fight would continue even if heaven falls.
Wike said, “You know I will not agree. If heaven will come down, let heaven come down so that everybody will be at rest.
Anybody who knows me knows too well: what I’ll never take is threat. You know I will not agree. If heaven will come down, let heaven come down so that everybody will be at rest.
“Let’s do things right. He said they should bring N20 billion every month; that’s politics. But nobody said this when I was fighting. If you like, accuse me.”
This is coming despite reports that President Bola Tinubu has resolved the crisis.
The planned impeachment has caused chaos in the state as party supporters have continued to stage protests in Port-Harcourt, the capital city.
