Rivers Crisis: No Amount is Too Big to Pay For Peace, Says Fubara

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State expressed his unwavering commitment to fostering peace within the state, emphasizing that he is willing to make any necessary sacrifices.

The Governor conveyed this dedication during a special convocation ceremony at Pamo University of Medical Sciences, where he pledged to uphold the truce facilitated by Bola Tinubu.

The longstanding feud between Governor Fubara and Nyesom Wike resulted in a significant political realignment, with 27 lawmakers defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Notably, Wike, who currently serves as a minister in the central government of the APC, found his party gaining support in the State House.

In addition to the political reshuffling, the dispute led to the resignation of nine commissioners from Governor Fubara’s cabinet. Despite these challenges, Governor Fubara, addressing the citizens of the state, expressed deep gratitude for their unwavering support during this tumultuous period.
