(JUST IN)Rivers crisis: Tinubu’s plan to resolve Wike, Fubara’s rift has crumbled – APC

Tony Okocha, the caretaker committee chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, has indicated that President Bola Tinubu’s move to mend the schism between the state governor, Simi Fubara, and the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, has collapsed as the crisis in the state persists.

Tinubu recently met with Wike and Fubara at the presidential palace in Abuja to mediate peace between the two state politicians.

However, in the last four days, the matter has taken on a new dimension with the demolition of the state House of Assembly Complex and the defection of 27 assembly members loyal to Wike to the APC.

Following the occurrences in the state, Okocha addressed a press conference at the APC national secretariat on Thursday in Abuja.

“I wasn’t part of it, but whatever that was it, has broken down, and it has been broken irreconcilably.”

He also said the four members of the state House of Assembly led by the factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, who sat and passed the budget presented to them by Governor Fubara for the 2024 fiscal year were dwelling on illegality, saying their action would not stand.

Okocha said the APC was wooing Wike to defect to the party, stressing that as soon as he becomes a member of the APC, he would become the party’s leader in the state.
