The reports published in certain media platforms claiming that Governor Siminalayi Fubara has dismissed specific categories of his aides and local council Chairmen have been refuted by the Rivers State Government as baseless.
In an official press statement issued by Joe Johnson, the Commissioner for Information and Communications, the government has called upon the public to disregard these unsubstantiated reports.
According to Johnson, “It is essential to clarify that our esteemed governor is a technocrat with a solid civil service background. He is known for his kindness and humane nature, and he conducts his actions in accordance with established rules and in reverence to God.”
Johnson further urged the people of Rivers State and the general public to set aside such unverified reports, as the government will provide the necessary information regarding any personnel changes made by the governor at the appropriate time.
He stated, “As the Commissioner for Information and Communications, I will ensure that the public is updated on developments as they unfold.”
It is worth noting that there have been publications suggesting that Fubara had terminated the appointments of his Chief of Staff, Chief Security Officer, all Local Government Chairmen, and the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Simon Amadi, while seeking an Acting Chief Judge for the State.
These speculations emerged in the aftermath of the bombing of the Rivers State House of Assembly Chambers and an impeachment notice served on the Governor by a faction of lawmakers loyal to Nyesom Wike, the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), led by Martin Amaewhule as its Speaker.
Also, Edison Ehie, the Leader of the House who was earlier removed, emerged as the Speaker loyal to Governor Siminalayi Fubara.
