By Monsurudeen Olowoopejo

Worried by the leadership crisis rocking Rivers State, the lawmaker representing Bayelsa at the Senate and former governor, Seriake Dickson, has met with former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and a former lawmaker, Edwin Clark, to discuss possible solutions to the face-off between the Governor, Siminalayi Fubara and his predecessor and Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike.

The meetings held separately was conveyed by Dickson who claimed to be disturbed by the slow pace of development caused by the fight between both personalities including the lawmakers.

The lawmaker met with both individuals in their homes in Abuja yesterday, discussing possible solutions to the crisis and effects it was already having on Bayelsa, the neighboring state.

He confirmed the meeting through a statement released on his official social media handle on Friday.

He said: “Yesterday I visited our father Pa E.K. Clark and our leader the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, GCFR at their homes in Abuja to brief them and share ideas on the developments in Rivers State.

“They are both concerned like everyone else and on the same page with our earlier message on the need for peace, tolerance and stability to enable the Governor execute his policies and programs for the benefit of the people”.

The discussion on Rivers crisis came hours after Fubara allegedly described Wike as enemy of the state and declared that the minister and his loyalists especially the lawmakers and former commissioners that resigned, have been defeated.
