After weeks of dramatic twists and turns in Rivers State, the political gladiators in the oil-rich South-South state reached a truce on Monday after a meeting with President Bola Tinubu.

The meeting had in attendance Governor Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.

Also at the meeting were ex-Rivers governor, Peter Odili; and some traditional rulers from the state.

Vice President and the Chief of Staff to the President were also part of the meeting. Rivers State has been a theatre of the absurd in the last 3 months with the state House of Assembly serving as the “boxing ring”. The rift between Wike and Fubara split lawmakers in the House with 27 of them decamping from the PDP to APC.

The feud also saw the emergence of parallel sittings, an impeachment plot against the governor, the demolition of the Assembly complex, and a gale of resignations of pro-Wike commissioners in Fubara’s cabinet.
