Shehu Sani, a former senator for Kaduna Central senatorial district in the eighth Senate, said only God can resolve the political duel of might between the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and former Governor of Rivers State Nyesom Woke and his successor Siminilayi Fubara.

Sani stated this in a post via his X handle on Tuesday. He said, “ Rivers state has been left in the hands of God to solve the problem.”

Sani’s comments come on the back of the description of President Bola Tinubu’s silence over the seemingly unending political crisis between godfather and son, by the 21st-century Youths of Niger Delta and agitators with Conscience. They described the silence as disturbing and unacceptable.

The group warned that Wike’s quest for dominance and control should be cautioned and shut down by the president as “Instability in the state could snowball into instability in the region”

In a statement by the Niger Delta group Izon Ebi, the group leader, said “A stitch in time saves nine. Mr. President should call Wike and his lackeys to order.”

It is important to note that the tussle for supremacy between the governor and Minister of the Federal Capital Territory peaked earlier this week, especially within the national assembly.

The Amaewhule-led faction of the Rivers state House of Assembly had on Monday directed the Governor to resubmit within seven days, the 2024 appropriation bill for N800 billion. However, the sitting governor widely ignored the request with political pundits describing the move as a prelude to an impeachment process.

With the Pro-Fubara faction and Pro-Wike factions holding House of Assembly meetings at different locations, it remains to be seen where this scruffle goes from here
