President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting with the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, the former governor of Rivers State, Sir Peter Odili, and some other stakeholders from the state at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

This is coming on the heels of the face-off between the governor and his predecessor, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

The FCT Minister was earlier seen at the State House.

Although the agenda of the meeting between the President and the protagonists in the Rivers State crisis was not made public at the time of filing this report, it may not be unconnected to the recent developments in the state in which 27 out of 32 members of the State House of Assembly, who are loyalists of the FCT Minister, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Also at the meeting is the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, and the Rivers State deputy governor
