Wike, Fubara faceoff can destabilise Niger Delta – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday, warned that the political crisis in Rivers State if not checked had the potential of destabilising not only the Niger Delta, but affecting other parts of the country.

Jonathan called on the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, and his predecessor and estranged political godfather,  Nyesom Wike to sheathe their swords, put the past behind them and work together in the interest of the people of the state and the development of the land.

The former President stated this while performing the flag-off of the construction of the multi-billion naira Trans-Kalabari Road project at Nkpor-Aker Road Roundabout, Rumuolumeni community in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State on Monday.

Fubara and Wike had been at loggerheads since last October with members of the state House of Assembly loyal to Wike attempting to impeach Fubara.

Last week, Fubara alleged that Wike left huge debt behind, stating that he would set up a panel to probe Wike’s administration.

Wading in on Monday, Jonathan harped on the need for outgoing governors and incoming ones to work together in the collective interest of the citizenry of their states.
