Rivers Crisis: Tinubu Sends Strong Message To Wike, Others

The Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale has warned the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike and others connected to the political crisis in Rivers State that the President will not take sides.

Ngelale who spoke in an interview on TVC over the weekend clarified that President Tinubu won’t allow any attempt to frustrate the Rivers government.

According to him, anyone with the belief that President Tinubu would take their side in the political crisis would be disappointed.


“I believe that anyone who believes that by their actions, whether it’s from the Federal level, State level or the legislative branch in the State or the executive branch in the state, if they are banking on Mr President to take sides on this matter, they’re mistaking and they’ll be disappointed.

“Mr President will not do that. What he will do is to ensure that everybody has what they need in order to work.

“He will also ensure that any attempt to frustrate the operation of the Rivers State Government of conducting its affairs in a way that it would benefit the Rivers people, that’s obviously not going to be allowed by this President or anybody else.

“So, I think there’s a need for all stakeholders to understand that Mr President won’t take sides,” he said.
