Secondus, who spoke specifically on the unfolding events in Rivers State between Governor Siminalayi Fubara and Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Nyesom Wike, said whatever intervention of President Bola Tinubu had made must comply with the spirit and letter of the constitution to be implementable.

He stated this in his Christmas message wherein he prayed that the peace, love, and joy of Christmas will energise “us to surmount our economic and security challenges and build a better country.”

The former chairman said having reviewed the political crises ravaging some states since the inception of this new administration, he cautioned the political class to be wary of actions that may constitute a threat to democracy and national security.

With particular reference to the crisis in Rivers State, the former PDP boss “contended that the Intervention of President Bola Tinubu must be by the spirit and letter of our constitution for it to be implementable.”

According to him, “There are creative ways a political conflict can be resolved if and when the President acts like a statesman and the President of all Nigerians.”

He insisted that “Mr President would have violated this sacred role if he acted in such a way and manner that gave an unconstitutional advantage to his political party, the APC, and an individual political godfather. This is the scenario the unenforceable agreement reached at the instance of Mr President purports to foster!”

Secondus joined other well-meaning Nigerians in the clarion call on Mr President and relevant stakeholders to “act in the interest of peace in Rivers State and ensure genuine, unbiased, generally acceptable, and enforceable reconciliation of the crisis.”

He commended the people of Rivers State for being peaceful and applying civil engagement in the face of “this wanton provocation and wished them and indeed all Nigerians Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
