Governor Fubara Apologises To Rivers People Over Crisis

The Theophilus Alaye-led Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide has condemned the moves by the Rivers State House of Assembly to impeach the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

The spokesman of the IYC, Bedford Benjamin, appealed to the lawmakers to desist from the act, saying it was capable of plunging Rivers State into chaos.

Bedford said the incumbent governor should be allowed to run the affairs of the state without interference.

He said: “The rascality of the Assembly is about to cause an unnecessary bloodbath in the state. The IYC cautions loyalists of tyranny to retrace their steps because we will not allow this illegality to thrive.

“We also heard that the sitting governor was teargassed by uniformed men. It is totally unacceptable”.

Bedford called on the federal government to wade into the matter and prevent anarchy from taking over the state.

He said the IYC would mobilise in solidarity for their kinsman governor adding that in the past 24 years, no Ijaw man had tasted the exalted office of Rivers governor.

Benjamin stated: “Now that we are here. Nobody can intimidate and embarrass an Ijaw son out of office. We shall resist it with everything. If this madness does not stop there will be a serious crisis in Rivers.”
