Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has stated that he did not approach President Bola Tinubu to ask for help in resolving the situation that was roiling Rivers State.

On the other hand, he asserted that the President ought to be commended for his intervention in the political climate of the oil-rich state.

Wike gave a speech on Sunday at the Kings Assembly Church on the 20th wedding anniversary and Thanksgiving of Hon. Dr. & Mrs. George-Kelly D.A. Alabo.

The former governor of Rivers State said he found it odd that the same individuals who went to ask Tinubu to step in and resolve the situation are now claiming he doesn’t have the constitutional power to do so.

He said, “We must thank Mr President for interfering and intervening, but I was not even the one who went to the President to seek for his intervention.

“They were saying “President intervene, President intervene”, and President intervened, they are now saying Mr President has no constitutional power to have intervened.

“But they were the same people who sought the President’s intervention and he has intervened to bring peace. They are now turning around to say no, the President does not have the constitutional power.”
