Don’t Be Afraid, No Man Can Shake You – Ex Rivers Governor, Odili Tells Fubara



Former Governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, has assured the incumbent governor of the state, Siminalayi Fubara of the people’s loyalty to his government amid rift with his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

Odili who asserted this in his appearance at the inauguration of the Omoku-Egbema Road in the state on Saturday, sided with Fubara in his rift with Wike, current FCT minister.

In a video of the inauguration ceremony on Channels TV, Odili told Fubara not to be scared of anyone as the people of the state are with him.

He told Fubara to remain focused on his “people-oriented objectives”, saying the projects so far embarked upon by the present administration are enough to secure the support of the people for the 2027 general elections.

Odili, who was Rivers governor from May 1999 to May 2007, said, “Don’t be afraid because when the people are with you, be assured that God is with you and no man can shake you.”

Fubara and his immediate predecessor, Nyesom Wike, have been embroiled in a protracted conflict in the last one year.

In April 2024, Wike, who is now the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), said he no longer had a smooth relationship with Odili whom he had frequently referred to as his “father.”

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.
