Amidst his conflict with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, Governor Sim Fubara has been charged by Tony Okocha, the caretaker chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in Rivers State, of showing disrespect for President Bola Tinubu.
Fubara has not complied with all of Tinubu’s declarations from the peace agreement with Wike, according to Tony Okocha, the state chairman of the APC Caretaker committee.
Speaking to defectors who were joining the party, he made remarks at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt.
Okocha said: “It will amount to barefaced disobedience for Gov Siminalayi not to follow to the latter, all the 8 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), as marks 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.”
