Shehu Sani, a former Kaduna Central Senator, on Tuesday described the peace accord, signed in Abuja on Monday, on the Rivers State crisis as one dangerous for the state governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara.

Sani said the peace accord will remove the knife from Fubara’s neck and set it behind his back.

Sani in a post on his X account stressed that the accord will only buy time for another round of battle.

“I have now read the Rivers agreement.The accord will remove the knife from the neck of Sim and set it behind his back.

“The accord will bury the hatchets with leaves.The accord outwardly sells peace, but internally buys time for another round of war.

"However, It can be better if the dialogue is periodically assessed and improved upon.”

Fubara and his godfather, Wike, have been at each other’s necks over the control of Rivers State’s political structure.

Some elders in the state have also alleged struggled for the control of the finances of the state, as a major reason for the crisis.

The rift had led to 27 out of 32 lawmakers in the state Assembly defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC, and about 11 Commissioners resigning from the Fubara-led executive council.

In a bid to resolve the crisis, Tinubu brokered a peace deal between Wike and Fubara at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday.

During the meeting, Tinubu issued an eight-point resolution as part of the peace deal.

Part of the resolution is for Fubara to recognise the House of Assembly controlled by the FCT Minister, and to represent the names of the commissioners who resigned for reappointment.
