Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara and his estranged godfather and Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike met today in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The event in the State House is the National Police Council currently being presided over by President Bola Tinubu.
The duo are among the 36 state governors invited to attend the Police Council meeting holding in the Council Chambers in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, under the watchful eyes of President Tinubu.
Other state governors at the close door meeting are Yahaya Bello (Kogi), My state governor , Prince Dr. Dapo Abiodun – MFR (Ogun), Ahmadu Fintiri (Adamawa), Bala Mohammed (Bauchi), Abdullahi Abba (Kano), Bassey Otu (Cross River).
Before they went into closed-door session, some of the governors including Wike and the National Security Adviser (NSA) Nuhu Ribadu were sighted as they engaged in an aside discussion while others engaged in exchanging banters.
In the ensuing development, Wike later proceeded to shake hands and briefly exchange pleasantries with Governor Fubara after he had disengaged from the NSA.
The president, it was learnt, used the opportunity of Tuesday’s meeting of the Police Council, which both the governor and the FCT Minister attended as members, to ostensibly end the feud between the two political allies.
Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, disclosed the president’s intervention while briefing correspondents on the outcome of the Police Council’s meeting, held at the State House, Abuja.
The relationship between Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State and his predecessor in office and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, soured over the weekend following attempts by a section of the state House of Assembly to impeach the governor.
