I’ll not tolerate intimidation on my supporters — Governor Fubara

The Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has promised that he will not accept any effort to arrest or intimidate his followers who believe in the truth.

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

The governor, who pledged that he would be bold in leading the way to ensure that peace reigned in the state, emphasised that no major scheme to arrest his patriotic followers on fabricated accusations would be permitted.

He noted that there is no extension of tenure for elected local government chairmen, and that the law is clear on the subject, stressing that the court has also supported the position of the law.

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.

“It’s really unfortunate that we started hearing some disturbing news from some LGAs of invasion of council secretariats, and it is really unfortunate. So, we have called the Security Council Meeting so that the needful will be done.

“We are also aware that our enemy is also planning a lot of things. But we will not fall into that plot. We will not also allow him or them to destroy the peace that we are enjoying in the State.”
