Rivers Crisis: Lawmaker Representing Wike’s LG Resigns, Backs Gov Fubara

RIVERS CRISIS: “I’m Ready for Peace,” – Wike Tells Fubara

by Victor Ndubuisi

Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, has shown his desire to accept peace in an effort to put an end to the continuing turmoil in Rivers State.

The state’s most recent governor, Wike, made this statement at a birthday speech he gave at his home in Port Harcourt to traditional leaders from Ogbaland. Wike is 56 years old.

Discord in the state legislature resulted from the escalating disagreement between Wike and Governor Sim Fubara.

Amidst the chaos, 27 MPs notably defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

On the other hand, Wike declared that although he and his group were willing to accept peace, they would not submit to being pulled down.

Wike articulated, “No politician will fold his hands and allow himself to be dragged down.

“I and my team would accept peace but we won’t allow ourselves to be dragged down because when we go down, who will protect our people. Who will talk about our own interest.”

When the state House of Assembly caught fire and was destroyed by Governor Fubara’s government, the situation escalated to a critical point.
