The Ijaw National Congress Worldwide has called on the Minister of the Federal Capital Teritory, (FCT) Nyesom Wike to reconcile with Governor Siminialayi Fubara for peace and prosperity of Rivers state.
According to the group, Wike and Governor Fubara are under compulsion to make peace for the development of the state.
The group expressed discontent with the state’s political problems, particularly between Fubara and his predecessor, saying that it would always be on the side of truth and good administration.
The call for peace between Wike and Fubara was made known via a statement released by the group’s President, Prof Benjamin Okaba, and made available to newsmen in Akure, Ondo State, on Sunday.
In the statement, the group commended the people of Rivers State for standing up to the alleged planned impeachment of Fubara and encouraged Wike not to destabilize the state’s existing administration.
The statement read, “We urgently call on all political players in Rivers State to play their duty to their constituents and forthwith cease from any further acts capable of slurring the sanctity of the office, institution, and person of the Governor of all Rivers people.
“We specifically appeal to Chief Nyesom Wike, to retrace his steps from stoking division of any sort against the government of the day under the guise of protecting his ‘structure’. The political structure to which he refers should not be rolled up with the structure of the government of Governor Fubara as one entity under anyone’s thumb.”
