In a recent video posted on Facebook, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, Chieftain of the Kalabari Kingdom, shared his thoughts on the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State. He stated, “I know my friend, the president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and I know that he will take the right decision.” He made this statement, pointing out that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a man of honor, and he will take the right decision concerning the Rivers State crisis.
Speaking further, Asari Dokubo stated that he will be disappointed if President Bola Ahmed Tinubu does not make the right call concerning the ongoing dispute between the Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, and the Governor of Rivers State, Gov’ Fubara. He further stated that they should find a way to make peace so Rivers State can move forward. He added that Wike should focus on what is going on in Abuja and leave Rivers State for Fubara to manage.
According to him, “I know my friend, the president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and I know that he will take the right decision, and the right decision will be in the interest of the people of Rivers State. I know and I believe that. I will be disappointed if the opposite is the outcome. Talk is cheap; let us find a way to make peace so that Rivers State will move forward. Let us try to make peace so that Rivers State people will benefit from their N800 billion budget.”
