Elder statesman Chief Edwin Clark has told President Bola Tinubu that Nyesom Wike, the immediate past governor of Rivers State and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCT, is not ready for sustenance of peace in the political crisis rocking the state.
Clark, in a statement on Thursday, in Abuja, said the continuous activities of Wike are clear indications that he is not ready for peace in Rivers State.
Gatekeeper reports that Tinubu intervened in the crisis when he issued an ‘8-point pact’ to both parties that the Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, and his allies should withdraw all court cases pertaining to the matter, which is against the 1999 Constitution and against popular opinion of Rivers people and indeed Nigerians.
Fubara and his associates, including the Speaker recognised by the court, Edison Ehie, have complied with the agreement.
According to the statement, “The expectation is that the 26 decamped legislative members who had filed cases in court, would have also done the same. But they refused, giving rise to the judgment delivered by Justice James Omotoso on January 22, 2024, stating amongst other things, the nullification of the 2024 Budget which was presented by Governor Fubara, passed and signed into law.”
