Group of Southern leaders under the aegis of Citizens Network for Peace and Development of Nigeria has thrown its weight behind the Federal Capital Territory FCT Minister, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike amid the ongoing political crisis in his home state, Rivers.

The leaders who rose after a meeting in Abuja on Monday said Wike remained undistracted in his position as FCT Minister, saying he has given free hands to his successor in Rivers, Gov. Siminalayi Fubara to run the state without any interference.

They also kicked against pockets of sponsored opposition against the “commendable work of the minister in Abuja”, saying those who milked the territory dry in the past would rather want the status quo to remain, to the detriment of the people.

According to them, the appointment of Wike by President Bola Tinubu is one the best decisions of the current administration, maintaining that the FCT Minister has achieved in nine months, what some former Ministers couldn’t do in eight years.

National Coordinator of the Southern movement, Chief Raphael Okorie, also begged Nigerians to remain patient with Tinubu, as he tries to fix the economy, restore security and provide the needed relief to everyone in the country.
