Annkio Briggs, an environmentalist and human rights activist, has claimed that FCT Minister Nyesom Wike did not experience power struggles when serving as governor of Rivers State but was acting as a political leader similar to Dr. Peter Odili.

She said that Wike’s leadership in the state’s politics was recognized by those regarded as Rivers State’s political heavyweights.

She maintained that despite Dr. Peter Odili’s seniority in age and political accomplishments, his readiness to recognize Siminalayi Fubara’s leadership is demonstrated by the way he endorsed him.

In an interview with Channels TV, she stated, ”I do agree with the thinking that the leader of a political party in a state like Rivers State is the governor of that state.”

“When Wike was governor, nobody dragged the power with him; he was a political leader like Dr. Peter Odili.”

“People who were in politics way before him, who were the political juggernauts of Rivers State politics, deferred to him as the leader of politics in Rivers State.”

“How do we now find ourselves where if somebody like Dr. Peter Odili had not stood up after the time he stood up?”

“The fact is that Dr. Peter Odili is showing us that he is prepared to accept that even though, by age and by political contributions, he is an elder, and he is deferring leadership to the governor, which it should be.”

Speaking on Thursday at the launching of a primary health care center, Dr. Peter Odili, the former governor of Rivers State, supported Fubara for the position of ‘political leader of the state.’

He commended the governor for standing up for the people’s interests despite the state’s political turmoil. He said that Fubara became the leader after winning the election by both the popular vote and the legal system.
