Rivers Crisis: Clark views the proposed remedy to be unacceptable

Former South-South leader and federal commissioner for information, Chief Edwin Clark has spoken out against the resolution of the political crisis in Rivers State by issuing directives to Governor Sim Fubara, describing them as “appalling” and “particularly unacceptable” to the Ijaw ethnic nationality.

According to the Ijaw chieftain, President Bola Tinubu faces a threat of legal action.

In a press conference held at Clark’s Asokoro residence in Abuja on Tuesday, the former governor of Rivers State and current minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA), Nyesom Wike, was characterised by Clark as the mastermind behind the chaos in Rivers politics during his tenure there alongside Odili.

You may remember that on Monday night, the governor and other River’s stakeholders met in the Presidential Villa in Abuja for a meeting presided over by President Bola Tinubu when the directions were handed down.

The eight-point resolution, according to the Elderstatesman, was an attempt to remove Nyesom Wike from his political leadership position and was therefore undemocratic, authoritarian, biassed, and one-sided.

He claims that President Tinubu’s apparent use of his mediating role to express his thanks to the FCT minister for “delivering” Rivers State to him in the previous presidential election is evident from the terms of the alleged settlement.

He emphasized that Tinubu’s prior appointment of Wike as minister of the FCT had placated him.
