Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has spoken on the recent political crisis that hit the state amid tension.
Fubara on Thursday stated that he did not send anybody adding that his predecessor and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike continues to be his principal.
The Rivers Governor spoke during the rededication ceremony for the Rivers State Judiciary’s 2023–2024 legal year, which Wike also attended. Saint Cyprian’s Anglican Church on Hospital Road was the venue of the occasion.
The Rivers state governor called for peace in the oil-rich state once more and said that the current political turmoil in the state was history.
Rivers state can, according to Fubara, if the players and those who support them behave peacefully.
He said: “My oga remains my oga. Whatever that has happened is in the past. I have not sent anybody to malign anybody.”
In addition, the governor issued a warning to those endorsing him to refrain from disparaging his opponents by using foul language, stating that he had given them no permission to do so.
According to him, in trying to attain development, the devil will always attack, but what is most important is to “identify the devil and push it out.”
It was the first time the two politicians who were the major characters in the most recent political controversy would cross paths in the state’s public eye.
Arriving at the church service nearly at the conclusion, Wike, the minister for the Federal Capital Territory, shook hands with his successor and sat in the same row as him for the duration of the ceremony.
