Rivers: Tinubu was prepared to take hard action if resolution failed—Presidency

According to the spokesperson for the Presidency, Ajuri Ngelale, President Bola Tinubu was fully prepared to take decisive action if the political crisis in Rivers State had not been resolved on Monday evening.

The spokesperson emphasized that the President’s intervention was driven by reasons beyond politics.

It was reported that Governor Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, reached an agreement to end the political crisis after a meeting with President Tinubu and other stakeholders.

Following the signing of the resolution, Ngelale expressed that the President acted as a father figure for the nation.

“The motive of the President in this case is clearly not a political one. He’s the father of the nation.

“He’s the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. It’s his primary responsibility to ensure that there’s peace, stability and security in all parts of the country.

“If he sees that peace is breaking down in any part of the country, this is a President that will take action. But nobody should be mistaken, His Excellency, Mr President, was fully ready and equipped to take a very hard action if this resolution was not reached.

“So it is of great relief to the Rivers people and Nigerians at large that a resolution has been reached.”
