IYC Warn Against Move To Impeach Governor Fubara, Says Sponsors Must Back Off

The Ijaw Youth Counci (IYC) Worldwide has issued a stern warning to those allegedly hatching plot to illegally impeach the Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency, Siminalaye Fubara.

As a council, we are warning that the proponents of this undemocratic act in Rivers State must refrain forthwith from such plot as the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide will fight with all they have to protect the Governor of Rivers State who is an illustrious Ijaw son.

A point must be made clearly that the Ijaws are not push overs in Rivers State or any part of the world, we have sacrificed a lot towards the growth and development of the state Rivers State. The Ijaws have contributed both politically and economically in sustaining the state over the years, this to us is a political battle taken too far and a well calculated attempt to deprive the Ijaws from the governance of Rivers State.

We cannot fold our hands and watch how desperate politicians from Rivers state that are in high places plot to unlawfully remove Governor Fubara who has done nothing but have clearly shown working in the development of Rivers State within the last five months that he has held sway as Governor of the state.

As Ijaw people, we will stand with our own as we will not allow anyone or group of persons cause any harm to His Excellency, Siminalaye Fubara, Governor of Rivers State, we cannot sacrifice Ijaw turn as Governor in Rivers State for anything. A fight against Fubara is a fight against Ijaw nation.

However, while Council is interested on the political developments in Rivers State, we are equally using this medium to caution the Rivers State House of Assembly members to be rational in their quest to carryout their legislative duties. We are aware of the grand plot to remove Fubara for an Ikwerre man to come in as Governor of Rivers State as we will surely resist it.

We are sounding it again for the umpteen time that any move or attempt to impeach Governor Fubara will be resisted by the Ijaw people via every available means. As a stitch in time saves nine.

IYC have also watched with great dismay over the wanton display of impunity from security officials in Rivers State firing teargas, gunshots and the pumping of water targetted at the Governor. To us the Governor of Rivers State had just escaped death.

In view of the above, we are calling on President Bola Tinubu and the Inspector General (IG) of Police for the urgent removal /redeployment of the Rivers State Commissioner of Police as we can no longer trust him to secure the Governor.
