One of the Catholic bishops recalled that Fubara is a member of the sect and, therefore, the governor should "remain strong, remain firm and remain bold."

How Wike, Fubara's rift started

In October 2023, the rift between Fubara and Wike went out of control when some lawmakers in the state house of assembly served the governor an impeachment notice.

Fubara got public sympathy and support, and President Bola Tinubu had to intervene to forestall any breakdown of law and order in the state.

Wike, on his part, said he and his camp have fulfilled their own part of the bargain and that the rest lies with Fubara and his camp.
