Wike left huge debts, possesses artificial integrity – Fubara

Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers state, has hurled brickbat at his predecessor Nyesome Wike, accusing him of accumulating huge debts before leaving office. The governor made the remarks at the commissioning of a road project, which had Abia state Governor Alex Otti as a guest of honour.

“This is to let the world know that if there is one problem this administration has, it is the huge debt burden. Most of the projects that are being commissioned, the contractors are coming for their balance-payment and it is running into billions,” said Fubara, who was auditor-general of Rivers state when Wike was governor.

He added, “I have said that I don’t want to talk. I don’t want to talk because I was part of that system. But, when you keep pushing me to talk, I will say it so that the people will know the true situation of things and be properly informed.”

Governor Fubara said he chose to invite Governor Otti to commission the Aleto-Ogale-Ebubu-Eteo Road because “he is an action integrity man.”

“I invited him because he is not an artificial integrity man … He is not like the one who would gather to talk because they just want to talk,” Fubara said in innuendo believed to be directed at Wike.
