Governor Fubara summons Security Council meeting amid rising tension in Rivers

Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has pledged to maintain calm in the state while safeguarding his followers, whom he says stand for truth.

Fubara made the commitment while speaking to reporters immediately after a State Security Council meeting with security agency chiefs at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

The governor emphasised that any effort to arrest his supporters on fabricated accusations would not be allowed.

Fubara stated in a statement issued by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, that the law clearly states that elected local government chairmen can extend their tenure.

Fubara said:

“Let me also say this: I’m also aware that there is a grand plan to come and arrest some of our supporters.

“This time around, you have to pass through me to arrest them because I don’t think there is anything that any of those people following us has done. Rather, they are standing on the side of truth.

“If it will cost us our lives to stand on the part of truth, we will do that. And I will be the one that will lead the course.

“Let me assure everyone, more especially, the great and peace-loving people of Rivers State: the law is the law. The law has said that there is no extension of tenure.

“The court said so, and whoever that is assuring anybody anywhere of whatever, I advise them to desist from it because peace is what we need in this State.

“I assure everyone of you that whatever it takes to make sure that we maintain peace and order, we are not going back on that.”
