Rivers crisis: Wike and Fubara Reach Agreement

In a significant development, Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State and his immediate predecessor, Nyesom Wike, have successfully concluded talks aimed at putting an end to the ongoing political crisis within the state.

The resolution came after a crucial meeting on Monday, where President Bola Tinubu and key stakeholders engaged with the opposing factions. A subsequent document arising from the discussions outlined several key directives to restore political stability in Rivers State.

According to the document, all impeachment proceedings initiated against Governor Fubara by the Rivers State House of Assembly are to be dropped immediately.

Additionally, any legal actions initiated by Governor Fubara and his team regarding the political crisis must be withdrawn without delay.

The directives further stipulate the recognition of the leadership of the Rivers State House of Assembly, led by Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule, along with the 27 members who resigned from the PDP.

The remunerations and benefits of all members of the Rivers State House of Assembly and their staff are to be reinstated promptly, with a mandate that the Governor shall not interfere with the Assembly’s funding.

The Rivers State House of Assembly is granted the autonomy to choose its location for legislative activities without executive interference.

Furthermore, Governor Fubara is instructed to represent the state budget to a properly constituted Rivers State House of Assembly.

The document also addresses the resignation of commissioners in the Rivers State Executive Council due to the political crisis. It mandates the resubmission of their names to the House of Assembly for approval.

Crucially, the dissolution of the Local Government administration in Rivers State is declared null and void, and there shall be no recognition of any caretaker committee for the local governments.

This resolution signals a pivotal moment in the efforts to restore harmony and governance in Rivers State, bringing an end to the protracted political discord that has gripped the region.
