Bishop Kukah Visit Tinubu Speaks On Rivers Crisis (see details)

The Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Reverend Father Matthew Kukah, has remarked that the political turmoil in Rivers State is not a recent phenomenon.

Speaking on Wednesday during a conversation with State House correspondents after his meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the State House in Abuja, the founder of the Kukah Centre highlighted the historical context of the political unrest in Rivers State.

Kukah expressed his hope that the issues between Rivers Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, would be resolved.

He noted that while ordinary citizens are concerned about the situation in Rivers State, politicians often find ways to resolve their differences.

The Christian leader emphasized the importance of Rivers State within the country and prayed for its swift resolution and repositioning.

He said: “This is politics. I’m very hopeful, we ordinary people cry more than the bereaved. The important thing is that politicians will fix their problems.

“Rivers State is a place that is very dear to me because I have been associating with them for a very long time. But, look, when politicians fight, don’t get carried away because they have their capacity to fix their quarrels.

 “I hope and pray that Rivers State will sooner than later reposition itself because it is not an insignificant part of Nigeria.”
