Photos of the winner of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the gubernatorial primary election have emerged on social media platforms. Siminialayi Fubara won the primary election after polling 721 votes to defeat his closest rival Isaac Kamalu who scored 86 votes.
With this result and PDP being very strong in the State, Fubara might take over Nyesom Wike’s job in 2023 after he emerged as the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State upon defeating 15 other aspirants in a tightly contested race to clinch the party ticket.
Siminialayi Fubara is a career civil servant and currently the Accountant General of Rivers State and a native of the Opobo Kingdom in Rivers State. He previously served as the Director of finance at the Government House and permanent secretary in the State Civil Service.
Although political analysts have opined that the All Progressives Congress might take over the State in 2023 because Nyesom Wike who is the incumbent governor is preoccupied with his presidential ambition.
