It is very unwise for Fubari to have shaded Wike publicly – Reno Omokri

A former Presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri on Saturday said it was very unwise for the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara to have shaded the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike publicly.

Omokri, in a tweet said “I am not sure Fubara was wise to shade Wike publicly. No matter what has happened between them, he still got to where he is because God used Wike to lift him.”

According to Omokri, “It is spiritually and morally wrong for anyone to hurl invective, whether apparently or subliminally at your benefactor. Wike may be overbearing, but at least his bullish personality got you where you are. It shows crass, not class.”

He said this would hardly happen among the Yoruba, saying “And look at where they are today. Godfatherism is bad. But when you go into a royal marriage, you don’t expect a usual marriage.

“Ogun and Lagos states have a larger budget than many African countries. Yet, their Governors were and are still loyal to their godfather.

“Harry S Truman was made US President by his godfather, Robert E. Hannegan. It happens. If we are to be honest, how is godfatherism different from mentorship? You can manage such relationships and not let it damage your Government.”

  1. Wike,could not have done otherwise considering that fubara was the one that shielded him on all his financial recklessness that he perpetrated as Rivers state governor.
    So it was quid pro quo.

  2. I am sure there are human forces wrongly advising Fubara against Wike. The Ex Governor is not a saint but like Shakespeare said, you don’t get to the top of a ladder scorning the base degrees by which you ascended.
