Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has called on the Oba of Benin Kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II, to wade into the crisis between Gov. Godwin Obaseki and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Speaking during a courtesy visit by Oba Ewuare II, on Tuesday at the Government House Port Harcourt, Wike said although the monarch is not a politician, he has a role to play in ending the feud.

The Governor called on the Oba of Benin to find a way to resolve the political feud amongst two leaders of Edo State.

He said, “I want to humbly call on you to wade into the political crisis in Edo State.

“These days, you see people of no consequence coming forward to determine who becomes a Traditional Ruler because they carry guns. We must perform our roles and functions,” he said.

Governor Wike called on South-South Traditional Rulers to work with the Governors of the zone to chart out areas that require developmental interventions.

He said: “When we interact, you point out areas where you require the governors to develop and we can synergise for the good of the zone.

“We will work together to move the Traditional Institution forward. We also need the support of the Traditional Institution for the development of the zone.”
