Gololo lauds Tinubu for intervening in rift between Wike, Fubara

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Garius Gololo, has commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for intervening in the rancour between Governor of Rivers state Siminalayi Fubara, the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike and members of the Rivers state House of Assembly.

Gololo who said this during a press briefing on Wednesday in Abuja, urged Governor Similaye Fubara to stand by the peace brokered by the President .

Gololo who said this during a press briefing on Wednesday in Abuja, commended President Tinubu for intervening, as he condemned those saying that they do not appreciate the terms of the settlement.

In his words “President has done the whole job he can do, and congratulations to the President. For President to achieving that peace alone, I think is a job well done for Mr President and Commander in Chief of Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“There no way you will serve without no peace. I see the one on Channel this morning saying that they have not accepted that peace.

“What we need is peace, Rivers is a volatile area, evening during elections how many people died. Do we want to kill our people because the Governor is fighting with his predecessor, we don’t need that. What we need is peace.

“Tinubu is not the president of APC, Tinubu is the President of Nigeria, so, whatever happens with Nigeria happens to him. And that is why he intervened as father. I think if you don’t congratulate Tinubu for having peace in Rivers, you don’t have to criticize the government.

“I want the Governor to maintain peace because all those people who are pushing him by the time the problem comes they will not assist him.

“You cannot fight the Federal government, President has already intervened, so let him (Fubara) follow the rules.”

The Elder statesman queried why Edward Clark did he not fight for the 13% for the host community in Rivers, if he claimed he was fighting for the people of the Niger-Delta region.

“I came here and called a press conference on the 13% for the host communities in Rivers. I am not from Rivers and not from the Niger Delta. Why did Edward Clark not condemn the 13%. It is this crises he will be talking about,” he asked.

On the issue of certain individuals who have threatened to go to court, the Human Right Activist advised them to bury the idea, and allow the peace President Tinubu has laboured to achieve to reign in River state.
