A report has hinted how the FCT Minister Nyesom Wike and the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio are reportedly scheming to remove two Governors.
According to a report by Independent, the grand plan was being prepared ahead of 2027 politics. The two top politicians are interested in calling the shots in their various states- Rivers and Akwa Ibom states respectively.
According to the report, the controversial and suspicious nomination of a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Etekamba Umoren, as a Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was part of the game plan collaboration between Wike and the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio to remove the Governor of River State, Siminalayi Fubara from office for moving against Wike in 2027 should the impeachment plot fails.
It was gathered that the hatchet plot is to exchange Etekamba Umoren for Wike in Rivers State and move the Rivers State REC who is Wike’s ally to Akwa Ibom to help the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio remove Governor Umo Eno in 2027 should the governor fails to defect to APC.
The report added that to concretize this plot, the Senate hurriedly screened and confirmed Etekamba Umoren and other RECs last week to avoid a court order from restraining them, and immediately transmitted their names to President Tinubu for swearing-in.
