Rivers State Governor, Sim Fubara, has sent a birthday message to his successor, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, on his 56th birthday today.
This comes amidst the power tussle in Rivers State and the recent defection of 27 lawmakers allegedly loyal to Wike.
Fubara congratulated and prayed for Wike on his new age in a post via his X handle.
He wrote: “Hearty congratulations Your Excellency. I congratulate my oga, His Excellency, Chief (Dr) Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, CON, GSSSRS, life Bencher, Immediate past Governor of Rivers State and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, on his 56th birthday today, December 13, 2023.
