Rivers Traditional Council Commits To Supporting Wike’s Favorite Applicants



The Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers has announced its support for Governor Nyesom Wike’s top picks for president five days before the eagerly awaited poll.

The kings also forbade politicians in the state from engaging in violent behavior, stating emphatically that no political position was worth the lives of any citizens.


At their 114th quarterly meeting, which the governor attended in Port Harcourt on Monday, their chairman, King Dandeson Douglass Jaja of Opobo, summarized the views of the traditional rulers in a speech.

Along with Wike, a frequent guest, other attendees included Siminialayi Fubara, the PDP candidate for governor of Rivers State, and his deputy, Ipalibo Harry-Banigo.


The monarchs vowed to back Wike’s preferred candidates and stated that their major worry was for the state’s stability following the elections in February and March.

In his perhaps final address to the council as governor, Wike expressed his gratitude for the traditional chieftains’ contributions to the stability and progress of the state.


Yet, he emphasized the importance of maintaining his programs, endorsing the PDP candidate for governor as the person best suited to carry out his plans for the state.

Despite the fact that traditional rulers are expected to be apolitical, Wike wants them to be steadfast in their choices for the sake of the state’s expansion.
