Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has promised not to give up on impeaching Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara in their continuing power struggle.
The Rivers State House of Assembly is impeaching Fubara, who fell out with Wike, his predecessor, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
Impeachment proceedings against the governor had been started by several House members and Wike’s supporter, Speaker of the Assembly Martin Amaewhule.
The Majority Leader of the House, Ehie Edison, who is thought to be a loyalist of Fubara, had been suspended by Wike’s allies at the assembly.
Speaking on Tuesday during a meeting between the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party and the governors elected under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform over the situation in Abuja, Wike maintained 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 happening in spite of rumours that the problem has been addressed by President Bola Tinubu.
Party supporters have continued to hold protests in the state’s capital city of Port-Harcourt, which has resulted in pandemonium due to the impending impeachment.
