Rivers Crisis: Wike and Fubara meet, shake hands in Aso Rock

Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Tuesday met at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The embattled Governor and his estranged godfather attended the National Police Council meeting currently being presided over by President Bola Tinubu.

The meeting came the Rivers State House of Assembly initiated impeachment procedures against Fubara on Monday.

It was gathered that the two personalities shook hands upon seeing each other at the villa. Several governors in attendance include, Yahaya Bello (Kogi), Dapo Abiodun- (Ogun), Ahmadu Fintiri (Adamawa), Bala Mohammed (Bauchi), Abdullahi Abba (Kano), Bassey Ottu (Cross River).

It is the first time Fubara and Wike are meeting face to face since the beginning of the reported spat between them.
