Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has urged all aggrieved factions in the state to join hands with him and allow peace to prevail.
Fubara said lack of peace would bring about division in the state, hence the need for unity.
This is coming amid the rift between him and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.
Represented by his deputy, Ngozi Odu, Fubara spoke at the Ogoni Day celebration at Bori Town in Khana Council yesterday.
He said: “I, therefore, want to plead with everyone to put our hands together and allow peace to prevail across the state because without peace, there will be unnecessary division. We don’t need that now.
“We do not joke with all the councils in the senatorial district, in which Ogoni is a major block; therefore, bringing development here is a top priority of this administration.
“You know that we have talked about electricity and security in Ogoni land and these are top priorities of the government.”
