Organised Labour stages solidarity rally for Fubara threatens to occupy Port Harcourt

Members of the Organised Labour in Rivers State gathered at the entrance of the Government House in Port Harcourt on Friday staging a solidarity rally for the state governor Siminalayi Fubara who is currently embroiled in a political battle with his predecessor, Nyesom Wike.


They were joined by youths who carried placards with different inscriptions expressing support for Fubara and calling on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to sack Wike who is the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT).


Some of their leaders who addressed the rally called on the governor not to implement the resolutions of a peace meeting brokered by President Bola Tinubu recently.


The meeting, which was presided over by the president with all the parties to the crisis in attendance, agreed that the governor should withdraw all court cases relating to the political crisis that has rocked the state since November. It was also resolved that the Martin Amaewhule leadership of the state assembly and the 27 lawmakers loyal to Wike who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and whose seats were declared vacant should be recognised, all impeachment proceedings against the governor be dropped while the governor was also directed to resubmit his 2024 budget proposal (already passed by the five lawmakers loyal to him)to a properly constituted assembly and represent the names of all the seven commissioners who resigned their appointments to the lawmakers for reconsideration among other resolutions.


The protesters Friday asked the governor not to implement the agreements. They threatened that should he go ahead to implement them they will start to occupy Port Harcourt beginning from January 3, 2024.
