Written by on July 6, 2024

On Thursday, the raging political crisis in Rivers state took another interesting twist as the judgment of the Appeal Court in Abuja gave some degree of reprieve to Martins Amaewhule and his group of 26 Assembly members.

The judgment sparked a wild jubilation in the camp of the former Governor and serving minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike as It gave the minister some edge over Governor Siminalayi Fubara in the ongoing political war of attrition.

 Appeal court’s judge in the ruling, held that the Rivers State High Court in Port Harcourt lacked the jurisdiction to rule on the validity of the defection by Martins Amaewhule and his colleagues.

The Caretaker Committee Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Rivers State, Mr. Tony Okocha has described Governor Siminalayi Fubara as the political investment of the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

This is as he describes Wike as Fubara’s mentor, saying the latter would not have been governor without the strong backing of the former.
