Wike said this while addressing journalists on his political tussle with Fubara in Abuja on Monday.

According to Wike: “The Executive, Legislature and the Judiciary are all functioning independently. All thanks to the President”.

GistReel reports that a heated political face-off broke out between Wike and Fubara over the leadership of the state.

The face-off led to the burning of the state legislative chambers three months ago by some lawmakers believed to be Fubara’s loyalists.

Some commissioners and lawmakers loyal to Wike had resigned from the state executive council and defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

But, President Tinubu had intervened in the rift and compelled them to sign a peace pact.

As part of the peace pact, Fubara had renominated and sworn in the commissioners.
