A collective of concerned indigenes of Rivers State residing abroad, under the aegis of Rivers in Diaspora said its deeply alarmed by recent developments that threaten the stability and progress of the state. They claimed to have received reliable information that certain individuals, both within and outside the government of Rivers State, are conspiring to create political turmoil within the state.
The Diaspora in a press release alleged that:
“Their sinister agenda is to sow discord between our esteemed Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, and his mentor, Barrister Nyesom Wike.
” We want to emphasize that this intelligence comes from credible sources. Their ultimate aim appears to be the initiation of impeachment proceedings against the Governor.
“Additionally, we have learned that these conspirators are actively attempting to sway members of the State House of Assembly to support their nefarious objectives.
“Let it be known unequivocally that any endeavour to divert Governor Fubara from his unwavering commitment to good governance in Rivers State will encounter formidable legal opposition. We are also prepared to mobilize peaceful protests of unprecedented magnitude, setting a new standard for opposition resistance in Nigeria.
The Statement jointly signed by Johnson Eke Wise and Margaret Ijeoma Otti on Sunday 29th October, says “as concerned citizens, we have previously advocated for the Niger Delta Agitators, as we recognize their legitimate demands for what rightfully belongs to them. If these subversive actions persist, we may have no choice but to engage our fellow Niger Delta brothers and sisters to put an end to the injustices being perpetrated in our state.
“To our dear Governor, we urge you to press forward with your remarkable efforts in the service of Rivers State. Rest assured that Rivers people, both at home and abroad, will not idly standby while nefarious forces seek to undermine our progress.
“We extend our gratitude to everyone who has supported the cause of justice and equity in Rivers State, the statement added.
