A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, Dakuku Peterside, says President Bola Tinubu can’t fold his hands and allow Rivers State to explode.

Peterside, in a statement, said the crisis in Rivers State was a shameful development.

He said, “As a leader and stakeholder in the affairs of Rivers State who has personally invested a lot in the development of our dear state, I call on the President and Commander in Chief to intervene and save Rivers from going up in flames. Mr President should note that Rivers State is gradually sliding into total anarchy.

“As a statesman, he cannot afford to fold his hands and watch the destruction of the state and institutions of democracy. Mr President, at this point, must place the interests of Rivers State and the people of Rivers State above every other consideration. We should be in favour of politics of good governance and inclusive development.”

The rift between Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, led to 27 members of the state House of Assembly defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
