Governor Fubara Dumps Rivers Traditional Council Chairman, Appoints New Head

Governor Fubara Dumps Rivers Traditional Council Chairman, Appoints New Head

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has announced a change in leadership at the State Supreme Council of Traditional Rulers. In a meeting with the traditional rulers at the Government House, Port Harcourt, Fubara revealed that Eze Sergeant Awuse has been removed as the chairman of the council.

The governor attributed Awuse’s removal to his inability to lead effectively due to his involvement in the ongoing political crisis in the state. Governor Fubara defined Awuse as an unstable person who has been playing double standards since the crisis began.

Fubara explained that the council’s leadership cannot remain vacant and therefore appointed Eze Chike Wodo as the new chairman. He expressed hope that Awuse would eventually resign and allow a more stable leader to take over.

The crisis in the state has been ongoing for some time, and Fubara has been at odds with some traditional rulers over their perceived lack of support for his administration. The governor had previously accused Awuse of not being effective in his role and failing to address the concerns of the traditional rulers.

In a statement, Fubara emphasized that the council’s leadership must be stable and capable of resolving the ongoing crisis. He assured that efforts are being made to resolve the issue and restore peace to the state.

It is worth noting that the State House of Assembly had previously passed a law preventing Fubara from interfering with the leadership of the traditional council. However, this development may signal a shift in approach by the governor’s administration.
