Leader of the Arewa community in the South South, Alhaji Musa Saidu has called on President Ahmed Tinubu to wade into the feud between governor, Sim Fubara of Rivers state and the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.
Saidu in a statement said the crisis in the state will scare investors from coming to the country, adding that it will spread to other parts of the Niger Delta region if nothing was done.
He urged the President to call the Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike to order, noting that since he started fighting governor Sim Fubara there has been tension in the state.
“Rivers state is the energy corridor of Nigeria and spreads to the gulf of guinea through the Bonny river . It must be protected by the federal government from political crisis.
“The President should call his Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike to order. Since he started fighting governor Sim Fubara there has been tension in the state. People are afraid of what will happen in Rivers state. The crisis in Rivers state will be bigger than what some think it will be if the current situation is allowed to get out of hand.
“There is under ground massive build up against Sim Fubara. The Ijaws will not surrender to this .We don’t want crisis in Rivers state. There is peace in Bayelsa and we want that peace in Rivers state. If there is crisis in Rivers state it will be disruptive to the economy of the country because the crisis will spread across Niger Delta,” he said.
