With the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State between governor Simi Fubara and his benefactor and predecessor in office, Nyesom Wike becoming intractable, a revered Ijaw leader, Pa Edwin Clark has pleaded with President Bola Tinubu to step into the political crisis so as to find a lasting solution to it.

Recall the revered Ijaw leader had also called on the President to find a lasting solution to the Ondo State political crisis by calling for adoption of the doctrine of necessity.

The former federal commissioner, in an open letter to the president titled: “Another clarion call on Mr. President to intervene in the situation in Rivers State,” urged the president to step into the political crisis to save the state, albeit the region from crisis.

He stated: “I would like to write again as promised to call your urgent attention in dousing the state of deep political divide in Rivers State. As you would recall, I had earlier addressed a press conference four weeks ago when the political crisis started in Rivers State, appealing to you to personally handle this matter.

“I thank you for the action which you took at the time, including urging the Governor, HE Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor in office, Mr. Nyesom Wike who is today a Minister in your government to sheath their swords.

“However, let no one be deceived, the situation is not yet over and things seem to be degenerating by the day.

“Both the Minister and the Governor are my sons and that informs my particular interest to ensure that peace returns as soon as possible to Rivers State.

“Besides, Rivers State is very important to the stability of the Niger Delta and the overall national economy. Therefore any breakdown of law and order there will not be in the overall interest of all.”
