Rivers APC Cautions Fubara’s Failure To Implement Peace Pact

Governor Siminalayi Fubara has been alleged of planning to obtain court injunctions to prevent the State House of Assembly from doing its duties, according to Tony Okocha, the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) caretaker chairman in Rivers State. 

During a press conference held at his Port Harcourt office earlier today, Okocha questioned the sanity of the governor’s claim to have signed the Presidential Peace Pact because of his admiration for President Tinubu.

Mr Okocha said, “reading through the 8-point deal will it be true to say that 8 and 6 have been implemented? What are they? That you represent the budget to the legitimate Assembly as led by Martin Amaewhule. And 8 which of course directed the governor to conduct elections and never recognize any other nomenclature in the local governments.

“The governor’s blatant refusal to conduct local government elections goes to affect the extant laws of Rivers State and is a deliberate attempt to disrespect Mr President.”

With the turn out of events, It’s clear that the political conflict in the state rich in oil is not going away anytime soon.

Governor Fubara had just declared yesterday that his political opponents would be surprised if they mistook his composed manner and acceptance of the Presidential Peace Accord for weakness.

 He stated that he had been deluged with media remarks regarding the execution of the peace initiative and that he had made the mature and wise decision to remain silent.

He explained that when President Bola Tinubu interfered in the political crisis that seized the State on October 30, 2023, the arrangement that was adopted was a political solution, saying that it was crucial to correct the records for clarity.

Because of his respect for President Tinubu, Governor Fubara stated that he had since started implementing the agreement.

However, he issued a warning, stating that it seems some political actors have interpreted his compliance and humility as a sign of weakness.
