PORT HARCOURT – GOVERNOR of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara is talking tough and has vowed to to stand on the path of truth, not minding if it will cost him his life, stressing that he will do that and will be the one that will lead the course.

Fubara stated this against the backdrop of the crisis brewing in the state over the expiration of tenure of local government chairmen.

Fubara stated this while briefing newsmen shortly after a Security Council Meeting at Government House in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

Governor Fubara explained: “We’ve just finished a security council meeting and the meeting is because of the situation that we are experiencing in the state.

“You are all aware that the tenure of the Council Chairmen ended yesterday, 17th June, 2024 and today, we have ordered the Head of Local Government Administration to be in charge while we wait for further directives.

“It’s really unfortunate that we started hearing some disturbing news from some Local Government Areas (LGAs) of invasion of council secretariat and it is really, 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 were we will allow him or them to destroy the peace that we are enjoying in the state.

“Let me also say this, I am also aware that there is also 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 any thing that any of those people following us have done wrong, rather than standing on the side of truth.

“If it will cost us our lives, to stand on the path of truth, we will do that and I will be the one that will lead this 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.

“Thank you for what you are doing for us, moreover the media people, you’ve really been on watch for us.

“We don’t know anybody in Abuja, we only know the media in Rivers State and you have been doing very well for us.”
