Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has criticized his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, currently serving as Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), for his extravagant spending amidst the country's economic crisis. Fubara's remarks came during a solidarity visit from the people of Ogbakor Etche in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

The governor's comments were in response to a viral video showing Wike dancing while wearing a luxurious Versace coat worth over N2 million. The video sparked outrage on social media, with many condemning Wike's lavish spending.

Fubara cautioned his supporters not to be deceived by his political opponents' actions, saying they only pretend to be joyful in public but secretly cry behind closed doors. He emphasized that his administration prioritizes sincerity and truthfulness, even if it means not being skilled in extravagant displays like dancing. The governor's statement is seen as a subtle jab at Wike's perceived extravagance and a declaration of his own commitment to humility and honesty.
