The governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, known as PDP Governors’ Forum, will today (Wednesday) meet the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, for reconciliation and mediation purposes.
The forum made this known in a statement issued by its Director-General, Cyril Maduabum, on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.
Maduabum noted that the governors’ decision to visit Wike was reached at the forum’s meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
”The Chairman of the Forum, Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, hereby requests member Governors to converge at his residence, No 1 Miriam Aloma Muktar Street, Asokoro, opposite Rivers State Governors Lodge at 10.45 am to accompany him for the visit,” he noted.
Maduabum added that the meeting will hold at the FCT Minister’s office by 11 a.m.
The latest development is coming after some members of the Rivers State House of Assembly moved to impeach the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
This led to chaos in the state on Monday as the governor and his loyalists stormed the Assembly complex in protest against the plot.
Also speaking on the crisis, the PDP Governors’ Forum Chairman and Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, said President Bola Tinubu had intervened in the crisis.
Mohammed, while briefing State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Tuesday, said: “We had a closed session where very serious national issues were discussed that has serious security implications. That is the problem emerging in Rivers.
“The president in his usual leadership position intervened and then it will appear that there will be peace in that respect.
“He has showed that he is a president for everybody.”
