He said:

“We must thank Mr President for interfering and intervening. But I was not the one who invited Mr President.”

Aiming a dig at his critics, Wike said some double-tongued individuals asked President Tinubu to intervene, yet criticised the president’s move.

He said:

“You are the one who said the president should intervene, and president has intervened to bring peace. You now turn around that ‘no, he does not have the constitutional power’.

“President invited me to a meeting, and tells me to do something, within 24 hours, I will carry it out because not only because of the presidential intervention, I have subjected myself to the peace process.”

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Wike on Sunday, December 24, advised residents of Rivers state against getting involved in any conflict involving politicians without knowing the cause.

Wike said this while addressing the congregation during a thanksgiving ceremony for George Kelly Alabo, the immediate past commissioner for works at the Kings’ Assembly in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

Rivers elders drag Tinubu to court

Meanwhile, six elders from Rivers state dragged President Tinubu to the federal high court in Abuja for allegedly forcing Governor Siminilaya Fubara to enter into ‘an unconstitutional agreement’ with Wike.

The elders said the 8-point resolution was illegal and undermined the extant/binding relevant provisions of the 1999 Constitution, as amended.

Legit.ng also reported that Governor Fubara stated that despite the current challenges confronting his administration, he would not be distracted from the oath he took to defend the people of the state.
