Rivers State Governor, Mr. Siminalai Hubara, yesterday led some prominent leaders in the state to visit his Bayelsa State counterpart, Senator Douye Diri, to discuss the issue of common property between the two states pending in court. We agreed to work together to resolve the issue.

Mr. Hubala announced the state's eminence to open a new chapter in renewing the brotherly relations of the two countries and emphasize the importance of a unity conference that would never allow administrative boundary issues to create enmity between the two countries. He said he visited many leaders.

“The purpose of my presence today is not just a visit, but a reunion meeting. Our visit is to convey to our brothers that we want to work together for common goals and the development of our two countries.

“There are many things in Rivers State that are jointly owned by both states. I know we have never had such a meeting before, but whatever the issue, from this special moment, We hope to find a way to resolve the issue amicably so that we can move forward.”

“I have always said that development cannot be achieved in the face of crisis. In situations of disorder, we cannot help each other. Peace is the main element of development.”

Hubala also commended Senator Diri and the people of Bayelsa State for showing solidarity with the administration amidst the political crisis that erupted in Rivers State.

He told his Bayelsa counterpart that if they accept a brotherly handshake, they will not sneeze alone because they will grow stronger as they move forward as one people.

The Rivers State Governor acknowledged that President Bola Tinubu played a fatherly role in mediating the political crisis in Rivers.

In a statement by the Special Assistant to the Governor, Boniface Onyedi, Mr. Hubala reiterated his determination to continue supporting the administration of President Tinubu as without peace in Rivers State, the national economy will surely suffer.

In his address, the Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Douye Diri, thanked the Rivers State Governor for his visit and his initiative towards a mutually beneficial cooperation agreement with Bayelsa State.

Senator Diri recalled the ongoing legal issues at the Supreme Court of Nigeria over the disputed Soku oil well and the demolished Bayelsa House in Rivers State, and assured his willingness to work together as brothers.

Prior to this, Governor Nunohara also visited the residence of Senator Azuta Mbata to congratulate him on his birthday and wish him many years of bright health.
