Goodluck Jonathan, former President of Nigeria has called on the governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, and minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, to embrace peace and end the political crisis in the state.

The former president made the call during the flag-off of the construction of the N222.1bn Trans-Kalabari Road in Rivers State on Monday.

Stressing the need for Fubara and Wike to work together, he said their collaboration would bring growth and development to the state.

According to him, any further escalation of the crisis would not be good for the Niger Delta state.

Jonathan further added that Rivers was at the centre of the Niger Delta and critical to the country, saying destabilizing Rivers would have an adverse effect not only in the region but the country at large due to the position it occupies.

DailyAgent reported that the political crisis between Wike and his successor, Fubara, has lingered for months with no end in sight.
