The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike has said his rift with Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State was purely politics.
Wike said it is politics if he demands N20 billion monthly and is allowed to award all the contracts to himself.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, the immediate past Governor of Rivers State wondered where Fubara was when he was fighting.
The minister vowed to remain politically relevant and maintain his structure.
According to Wike: “If I Demand N20 billion every month and even award all the contracts to myself, that’s politics. Where was he when I was fighting?
“I have to be politically relevant and I must maintain my political structure. I can’t allow anybody to cut me out immediately.
“If you like accuse me all you like, I won’t have a sleepless night because the right thing must be done.”
The rift between Wike and Fubara led to attempts by some members of the state assembly to impeach the governor.
The governor, however, resisted the attempts.
