Former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike Reveals Rift with Predecessor Peter Odili Over Political Differences


Former Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, says he no longer have a smooth relationship with one of his predecessors, Peter Odili, because “there are some political differences”.

Wike, who is now the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), revealed this during a chat with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.

Wike was the governor of the oil-rich South-South state from May 2015 to May 2023 before he was appointed minister by President Bola Tinubu.

At various public functions before now, Wike had described Odili, who was Rivers governor from May 1999 to May 2007, as his political father and leader.

When asked if his relationship with Odili has gone frosty, Wike said, “As it is today, politically, we don’t have good relationship. We don’t work together.”

On the rationale for the cold relationship between the two of them, Wike said, “there are some political differences”.

Though the minister did not clearly explained what he meant by “political differences”, the rift between Odili and Wike might not be unconnected to the fallout between Wike and the current governor, Siminalayi Fubara, who is facing impeachment threats by the state House of Assembly.
