“LG bosses will lose their job”: Fubara ally warns

As reported by Channels TV, Ihunwo, who is the chairman of the National Youth Council of Nigeria in Rivers state, disclosed that youths of the state are on alert to resist such a move, which he described as selfish.

Ihunwo made this assertion during a press briefing in Port Harcourt, the state capital, on Wednesday, May 8.

Speaking further, Chijioke Ihunwo, told the Speaker of the State Assembly, Martin Amaewhule, and the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, that Governor Fubara has not done anything wrong to warrant an impeachment.

The youth leader called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, to watch closely the event in Rivers State and call the main actors, like the FCT minister, to order.

This drama is unfolding after Governor Siminalayi barred heads and officials of the 23 local government areas from appearing before the Rivers state house of assembly.

Earlier, TheTalk.NG reported that Governor Siminalayi Fubara faulted some members of the House of Assembly who are loyal to FCT minister, Nyesom Wike.

Fubara condemned their actions towards his administration and said the members would cease to exist as legislators if he so decides.

Governor Fubara acknowledged the role played by some political leaders, especially his predecessor and minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, in his emergence as governor but said that such efforts won’t make him worship a man.
