While President Bola Tinubu had earlier waded into the matter, the political tension in Rivers State has now taken another dimension. But Ada-George believes former governors of the state can prevail on the actors to sheathe their swords.

According to him, when the crisis erupted in October, the former governors tried to reach out to the parties involved. While contact was made with Fubara, the elder statesman said they have not been able to speak with Wike who is now the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
