Fubara Denies Sacking Rivers CJ, CoS, Others

Gov. Similayi Fubara of Rivers State

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has debunked claims that he sacked the State Chief Judge, Justice Simeon Amadi; his Chief of Staff, Hon. Chidi Amadi; and suspended the Chairmen of the 23 Local Government Areas in the unfolding power tussle between him and his predecessor Nyesom Wike,

Social media has been agog with talk that the governor sacked his Chief Security Officer in the wake of the crisis that rocked the State House of Assembly following the move to impeach him and the crisis which rocked the state.

But the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Warisenibo Johnson, in a statement issued on Tuesday morning said speculation are false.

Johnson describes Fubara as a ‘technocrat with robust civil service background’ and a kind-hearted individual who does things according to laid down rules and with the fear of God.

The statement entitled ‘Unfounded Reports’ reads, “There had been unfounded reports making the rounds on various media platforms about His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, GSSRS, sacking certain categories of his aides and local council chairmen.

“This is to clarify that His Excellency has not given me such directive as the official spokesman of the state government as of today, Tuesday, October 31, 2023.

“Our dear governor is a technocrat, with a robust civil service background, kind-hearted and a very humane person who does things according to laid down rules and with the fear of God.

“We therefore ask Rivers people and the general public to jettison such unconfirmed reports as the public will be properly informed of who may have been removed by His Excellency at the appropriate time.

“It is pertinent to note that as the Commissioner for Information and Communication, I shall keep the public updated on events in due course”.
