The governor of Rivers State, Sim Fubara, has come under attack by the state’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC over the feud between him and the former governor of Rivers who’s now Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.
Governor Fubara was accused by APC of disrespecting President Bola Tinubu amid his rift with Wike.
According to the APC Caretaker committee Chairman in the state, Tony Okocha, Fubara has not fulfilled all the proclamations made by Tinubu at the peace deal with Wike.
He spoke at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt while addressing defectors joining the party.
Okocha said: “It will amount to barefaced disobedience for Gov Siminalayi not to follow to the latter, all the 8 indices in the proclamation made by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in response to the Rivers State political crisis.
“His continued refusal to present the Rivers State 2024 budget to a properly constituted Rivers State House of Assembly under Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule, (Speaker), as captured in index 6.
“The flagrant cold feet in the conduct of Local Government Elections, (see index 8), smarks of disrespect for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“The APC Rivers, (which is Mr President‘s Party), stoutly condemns this act of disobedience perpetrated by Gov Fubara and warns against the likely concomitant fallouts.”
