The Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, met with President Bola Tinubu on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, marking a notable political engagement.
Governor Fubara arrived around 5:35 p.m. and proceeded directly to the President’s office.
After the meeting, which concluded around 6:30 p.m., Governor Fubara interacted with journalists but refused to divulge any details regarding the purpose or outcome of his discussion with President Tinubu.
Emphasizing the private nature of the visit, he responded to inquiries by simply stating, “It was a private visit.”
While the specifics of the meeting remain undisclosed, there is speculation that it may be linked to the ongoing political crisis in Rivers State.
The core of this crisis revolves around controlling the state’s political structure, a contentious issue that has seen Governor Fubara pitted against his once political mentor and now rival, Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
This meeting between Governor Fubara and President Tinubu is attracting considerable attention, given the current political climate in Rivers State.
