Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike has gave an explanation for his agreement to a peace accord with his predecessor and ‘sworn enemy’, Rotimi Amaechi in the interest of the Rivers people. The governor gave his word to uphold the peace accord brokered by the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS), Alh. Musa Daura.
His spokesman, Simeon Nwakaudu, quoted him as saying, “I was at the peace meeting because we love peace and want the state to move forward”
“I signed an undertaking on your behalf that we are prepared for INEC credible, free and fair elections. It is not in our position to have crisis because we are the ones losing.”
