We’ll Continue To Make Them Restless – Fubara


April 4, (THEWILL)- Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has knocked his critics for being restless since his comment on Wednesday when he threatened to surprise them over his perceived political weakness, saying, “We will continue to make them restless.”

“You can see how restless they are since I made the small statement yesterday. We will continue to make them restless”, he said.

This is just as he warned against any changes to the list of caretaker committee members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Rivers state.


The Governor spoke on Thursday, at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Port Harcourt International Automobile Spare Parts Trading and Commercial Centre, located at KM 17, Port Harcourt Expressway, Elelenwo/Rumuokrusi.

THEWILL gathered that supporters of the Governor had raised concerns about the list of Rivers State and Local Government Caretaker Committee members of the PDP published by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

The list allegedly included names of former Governor Nyesom Wike’s supporters, who were previously not members of the party’s executive.

Speaking on Thursday, Fubara disclosed that the party had agreed and extended the tenure of the executives in states where their tenures had expired by three months.

“I know that a lot of you saw something flying in the media. Let me brief you. We had a meeting and agreed that for all the states affected, the executive should be extended for three months. This extension is not to bring in new names”, he said, adding that the National Executive Committee of the party would convene on April 18 to ratify the list.

Governor Fubara, who emphasised that the caretaker committee members were not expected to operate independently of the state governors, attributed the current situation in Rivers State to some “individuals seeking attention”.

The Governor had on Wednesday, warned his detractors not to misinterpret his respect to honour the peace agreement reached in Abuja at the intervention of President Bola Tinubu as a sign of weakness.

Governor Fubara, who spoke when he received members of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), from the 23 local government areas on a solidarity rally at Government House Gate, emphasised that the peace deal initiated by President Tinubu and accepted by all stakeholders including him was a political solution to the crisis that engulfed the State on October 30, 2023.

Adding that he immediately began the implementation of the agreement because he respected the President, Fubara warned he would surprise his detractors.

“And I am doing it because of the respect I have for Mr President. But, let me say it here, if that action that I have accepted to take is seen as a weakness, I will surprise them. I want this message to go to them”, he said on Wednesday.
