Wike vs Fubara: You are disrespecting Tinubu—APC Chairman blasts Rivers governor

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused Governor Sim Fubara of disrespecting President Bola Tinubu amid his rift with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

The APC Caretaker Committee Chairman in the state, Tony Okocha, said Fubara has not fulfilled all the proclamations made by Tinubu at the peace deal with Wike.

He spoke at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt while addressing defectors joining the party.

Okocha said: “It will amount to barefaced disobedience for Gov. Siminalayi not to follow all eight indices in the proclamation made by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in response to the Rivers State political crisis.

“His continued refusal to present the Rivers State 2024 budget to a properly constituted Rivers State House of Assembly under Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule (Speaker), as captured in index 6.

“The flagrant cold feet in the conduct of local government elections (see index 8) are signs of disrespect for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The APC Rivers (which is Mr. President‘s Party) stoutly condemns this act of disobedience perpetrated by Gov. Fubara and warns against the likely concomitant fallouts.”

LABOUR PARTY SETS TO IMPLODE

LABOUR PARTY SETS TO IMPLODE

 

Fear and mistrust is about tearing Labour Party apart as politicians who never knew how the party was formed or the principles by which it operates have taken charge and want to reap where they did not sow.

 

This is the general expression of most Labour Party members who devoted their time, resources, and energy to ensure the party gained prominence and national credibility, adding that if care is not taken and this negative modus operandi of the party is not checked before situation literally degenerates to an unimaginable, unprecedented, unmanageable level, it might make Labour Party worse than PDP and APC combined.

 

Speaking In an aggrieved mood, a party stalwart, Comrade Akugbe Ighile from Orhionmwon LGA, opined that anyone that wishes to come to equity must do so with clean hands, and wonders why “some so-called party leaders are massively registering persons who have no bearings with Labour Party or understand the principles by which the party operates or even know the secretariat of the party, are being enlisted to become delegates or aspirants. Who does that?” he queried.

 

Rhetorically he asked, where are the trustees of the party? The Party is sadly heading for disaster if it continues with this Emperor-like manner. One would have expected a congress to be held before the primaries in February. I must confess that the leaders of the Party are docile, he quipped.

 

Naijanewsngr reports that the primaries are closer than expected and party leaders are divided along the lines of principles on the one side, and going for the highest bidder, on the other. This therefore gives room for the LP gubernatorial aspirants to begin to ask rhetorical questions about the role of the party and its leaders in ensuring credible and popular candidate to represent the party.

 

Labour Party, according to Comrade Akugbe, has quality and credible card carrying members with up to date dues and wonders why “the present merchants parading themselves as party leaders are hiring mercenaries in the name of would-be delegates for the forthcoming Labour Party primaries”.

 

He said further, if Labour Party must remain a united family to be able to win the hearts of the masses and the Obidient movement towards victory at the polls, the party need to stick to the tenets of the principles that binds the party members together.

 

Labour Party, in the forthcoming election in Edo State must not be allowed to go the way of Bayelsa, Imo, Kogi, Enugu, Lagos, and a few other States where the interest of the Party was sacrificed on the altar of personal gains.

 

He admonished the Party leadership, “equity, justice, fairness, and inclusiveness, should guide them in electing a strong, vibrant, marketable, competent candidate to fly the party’s flag at the Edo 2024 election.
