Fubara in fresh dilemma as Rivers LG chairmen confirmed Wike’s game plan for Tinubu in 2027
A video that has gone viral of some local government chairmen and their deputies in Rivers state chanting support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), have surfaced on social media. As reported by Vanguard on Friday, April 12, the viral video is fueling new insinuations on the political inclinations of Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers state.

From the video footage, the local government chiefs, elected on the platform of the PDP, could be heard chorusing PDP and APC in what appears to be an open demonstration of their loyalty to Wike.

Wike, a former governor of Rivers state, is himself serving an APC administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Meanwhile, Wike, the former governor and now minister, has been at odds with his preferred successor over the control of Rivers state.

The minister and chieftain of the PDP, in February 2024, sent a veiled message to Fubara and bragged that he and members of his camp would be undefeatable in the 2027 election because of the alliance between the PDP and APC in Rivers state.
