Wike vs Fubara: NLC, TUC, NANS, others protest in support of Rivers gov

The organized labour have thrown their weight behind Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State amid the face-off with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

The Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, Trade Union Congress, TUC, National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Labour Centres, ITC, Traders and others took to the streets of Port Harcourt to show solidarity to Fubara.

The struggle for the political structure of Rivers State had led a rift between Wike and Fubara.

27 lawmakers of the Rivers State House of Assembly loyal to Wike had defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, after Fubara was threatened with an impeachment.

The power tussle between the duo led to about seven commissioners resigning their appointment.

In a bid to resolve the crisis, President Bola Tinubu made Wike and Fubara sign a peace deal after issuing an eight-point resolution.

Following Tinubu’s intervention, the state Assembly withdrew the impeachment notice against Fubara.
