Rivers crisis: Tinubu won’t side you – Presidency to Wike, others

 President Bola Tinubu, through his Special Adviser on Media
and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, has told the Minister of Federal Capital
Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike and others that he will not take sides in the
ongoing crisis rocking Rivers State.

 

Ngelale said that anyone with the belief that President
Tinubu would take their side in the political crisis would be disappointed.

 

The Special Adviser made the President’s position know
during an interview on TVC, insisting that Tinubu won’t allow any attempt to
frustrate the Rivers government.

 

“I believe that anyone who believes that by their actions,
whether it’s from the Federal level, State level or the legislative branch in
the State or the executive branch in the state, if they are banking on Mr.
President to take sides on this matter, they’re mistaking and they’ll be
disappointed,” he said.

 

“Mr. President will not do that. What he will do is to
ensure that everybody has what they need in order to work.

 

“He will also ensure that any attempt to frustrate the
operation of the Rivers State Government of conducting its affairs in a way
that it would benefit the Rivers people, that’s obviously not going to be
allowed by this President or anybody else.

 

“So, I think there’s a need for all stakeholders to
understand that Mr President won’t take sides.”
