The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Chief Nyesom Wike said his political camp has fulfilled its part of the peace accord facilitated by President Bola Tinubu, as agreed by all the parties involved in the political crisis in Rivers.
Wike stated this when he visited the Oba of Ogbaland in the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area of Rivers, His Royal Highness Eze Nnam Obi III.
The former Rivers Governor told the monarch that he was disposed to peace in the state and would not disappoint the monarch.
Wike said, “We accepted whatever decision Mr. President has taken and we have on our own part fulfilled every condition given by Mr President because I told you I will not let you down.
“It just to let you know that your request of making sure there is peace in the state of which you asked Mr President to intervene, we have accepted.
“And I want you to use this opportunity to continue to pray for Mr President for God to continue to give him wisdom to pilot the affairs of this nation.”
Wike commenced President Tinubu for intervening in the crisis and demonstrating his interest in peace.
He said, “He is not from this state. So many people have piloted the affairs of this country, the crisis has engulfed other states and you hardly would see somebody to come out and say irrespective of the political party, I need peace in the state.
“If there is peace in the states, it will help peace in Nigeria. So, I will urge you and your council to continue to pray for Mr President for God to continue to give him wisdom to pilot the affairs of the country.”
Wike was accompanied by the Petroleum Minister (State), Heineken Lokpobiri; his predecessor, Chief Timipre Sylva; Felix Obuah, Senator Sam Anyanwu, Senator Barinada Mpigi, and Chief Victor Giadom.
