Fubara plots against Rivers assembly, APC alleges

…Rivers Govt. refutes allegation


Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State has been alleged to be plotting to procure interim orders to declare the state House of Assembly illegal.


The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker Committee Chairman, Tony Okocha, alleged during a media briefing in Port Harcourt on Thursday.

Okocha also said Fubara’s outburst on Wednesday while addressing members of the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees in Government House, Port Harcourt, the state capital was drumming war and disrespect for President Bola Tinubu.

The State APC Fubara, while referring to his detractors in the political crisis in the state, had said, “If you dare me, I will surprise you.”

The governor also urged members of the NULGE in the state to prepare and brace up, saying, “The next phase is fire for fire.”

Fubara also assured the NULGE members of his support and urged them not to be intimidated.

However, in a swift reaction, the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Joseph Johnson, said there was no truth in the claims of the APC chairman.

Johnson stated, “There is nothing like that. They are afraid because they know their fall is near.

“Rivers people spoke yesterday through the NULGE, and that organic love expressed threw the camp of the factional acting APC chairman into this feverish situation.”
