Rivers Elders Warn Fubara Against Wike’s Supporters

Rivers Elders Warn Fubara Against Wike’s Supporters

Illegal Decision

The Rivers Elders and Leaders Forum recently gave some advice to Governor Siminalayi Fubara. They warned him to be cautious around the commissioners in his cabinet who are allies of ex-governor Nyesom Wike. Chief Anabs Sara-Igbe, a member of the forum, spoke to our correspondent and also criticized Fubara’s decision to welcome back nine pro-Wike commissioners who had previously resigned.

Protecting Your House

Fubara had warned the returning pro-Wike commissioners not to work against his government. However, Sara-Igbe believes that it is not wise to protect your house with your sworn enemies. He explained that if your enemies are known, you should keep them away or at a distance. There is a saying that allowing your enemies to be your guard may lead to harm in the future.

Legal Battle

The Rivers Elders are currently in court, challenging the resolution reached at a reconciliatory meeting convened by President Bola Tinubu in Abuja. Sara-Igbe mentioned that Fubara’s actions are not in line with the law, and they are waiting for the court to interpret the eight-point directives. If the court rules in their favor, everything Fubara has done will become null and void. However, if the law says otherwise, they will continue to fight the case until the end.

Message to the Commissioners

Sara-Igbe emphasized that the returnee pro-Wike commissioners can build something on nothing. He believes that their actions regarding the eight-point directives are improper and invalid. They are relying on the court to interpret the law and provide guidance. The upcoming judgment in Abuja on the 28th will address many of the issues at hand.
