The APC chieftain stated this during an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

Naija News reports that Fubara and Wike, the former governor of Rivers State, have been at loggerheads over the control of the oil-rich state.

Reacting to the situation, Okocha said, “The feud between the governor and his mentor, Governor Fubara is Wike’s political investment.

“From civil servant to the candidate of a party and delivering him in 23 local governments out of 23, the first in our history, all of these were Wike’s ability to manoeuvre. The former governor has said, ‘I am not asking you for anything. I am only saying that you are destroying the structure that produced you.’

“If you are a politician, no politician will allow his structure to be dismantled. When you do that, it means that you have no home to fall back to. That is the issue.”
