Posted by

Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers State, has said that he is willing to collaborate with Governor Douye Diri, governor of Bayelsa State, to find a peaceful resolution to the ongoing legal disputes over property that is owned by both governments.

During his New Year’s visit to the governor at his country house in Sampou, Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area, Bayelsa State, Fubara expressed his wish for mutual cooperation with Diri.

Several high-ranking officials from Rivers State accompanied Governor Fubara.

He stated that his purpose in meeting with state officials is to stress how crucial the unity summit is, as it will hopefully usher in a new era of cooperation between the two nations.

The alliance, according to Fubara, is aiming to resolve any administrative border disputes between the two states. This statement was signed by Boniface Onyedi, the Senior Special Adviser on Media to the Rivers Governor.

“I am here today for a reunification meeting, not just a visit,” he declared. The purpose of our visit is to convey to our brother the desire to collaborate with him toward a shared goal and the progress of our two states.

A lot of property in Rivers State is owned by both of our states. I realize this is the first time we’ve ever met like this, but we’re hoping that we can find a way to resolve our differences peacefully and move forward from here.

Developing at times of crisis is impossible, as I have constantly stated. In a state of complete chaos, we are unable to assist one another. A key component of progress is peace.

Amidst the political situation affecting Rivers State, Fubara praised the people of Bayelsa State and the governor of the state for standing by his administration.

He reiterated his previous recognition of President Bola Tinubu’s involvement in mediating the political turmoil in Rivers.

Governor Diri expressed his gratitude to Fubara for the visit, which he said was an effort to forge cooperative agreements that would benefit both states.

Diri promised to make sure they work together as brothers and brought up the current legal concerns including the disputed Soku oil wells and the demolished Bayelsa House in Rivers State, which are all before the Nigerian Supreme Court.
