BREAKING: Rivers crisis: Tinubu meeting with Fubara, Odili others in Aso Rock


President Bola Tinubu is currently having a closed-door meeting with the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, at the Presidential Villa Abuja.

Fubara was accompanied to the seat of power by the former governor of Rivers State, Sir Peter Odili, and other stakeholders from the state.

The President is apparently wading in to resolve the face-off between the governor and his predecessor, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

Wike was earlier sighted at the State House.

Sources within the presidency confirmed that the meeting may not be unconnected to the recent developments in the state, in which 27 out of 32 members of the State House of Assembly, who are loyalists of the FCT Minister, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Before the meeting kicked off earnestly, the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, was seen attending the meeting
