A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Dele Momodu has shed light on the longstanding feud between Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

Momodu attributed the intense political rivalry to a battle for control over Rivers State’s treasury.

The conflict, which has escalated since Governor Fubara’s assumption of office in May 2023, has affected the state House of Assembly, local government chairmen, and various state commissioners loyal to both factions.

Despite President Bola Tinubu’s mediation efforts and the subsequent signing of a peace pact, the fight has persisted.
