Wike, Fubara agree to end feud | Court cases to be withdrawn

Following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu, parties involved in the Rivers crisis agreed, as outlined in an eight-point resolution, to withdraw all court cases immediately.

The resolution also stipulated the immediate cessation of impeachment proceedings against the governor, recognition of Martin Amaewhule as the speaker, reinstatement of remunerations for all assembly members, and the governor refraining from interfering with assembly funding.

Additionally, the assembly gained the autonomy to choose its session location without executive interference, and the governor would present the state budget to a duly constituted assembly.

The resolution further emphasized the resubmission of resigned commissioners' names for assembly approval and rejected the formation of caretaker committees for local governments, deeming the dissolution of local government administration null and void.

The background of the crisis involved tensions between Fubara and Wike, leading to impeachment proceedings, defections, and subsequent disputes over vacant seats in the Rivers assembly.
