Rivers LG crisis: Fubara calls security meeting

The Governor of Rivers state, Simi Fubara, called for a high-level security council meeting with heads of security agencies on Tuesday.

This was in response to escalating political tension in the state following the expiration of the tenure of the local government chairmen in the state.

The security meeting was held at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the state capital,

The closed-door session focused on recent disturbances at local government secretariats and the overall security situation in the state.

Addressing reporters after the closed-door meeting, Fubara said the meeting with the security chiefs was to devise effective strategies to prevent further invasions of local government offices.

The governor added that one of the agenda of the meeting was to ensure the stability and continuity of governmental functions across the state.

Fubara, therefore, warned the immediate past council chairmen against planning to unlawfully return to their previous positions.

He stated, “It is crucial that we respect the rule of law and the democratic transitions that uphold our governance structures.”
