BREAKING: Jonathan to Fubara, Wike: there is need for ceasefire

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on the Rivers state governor, Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, to stop the escalation of political tension in Rivers.

Jonathan, who spoke while kicking off the construction of the N222.1bn Trans-Kalabari Road, said Fubara and Wike must work together to advance the growth and development of Rivers.

He observed that the political tension in the state was too much but said the crisis would not help the development of Rivers.

He said destabilizing Rivers would negatively affect the Niger Delta region and would also have spiral effects on the country insisting that Rivers remained critical to Nigeria.
