Rivers APC accuses Fubara of peace agreement violation


The All Progressives Congress has leveled accusations against Governor Siminalaye Fubara, alleging a breach of the peace deal brokered by President Bola Tinubu amidst the political turmoil in Rivers State.

The Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee in Rivers State, Chief Tony Okocha, voiced these concerns, asserting that Fubara’s commitment to implementing the peace deal lacks sincerity.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, Okocha criticized Fubara’s inconsistent stance, stating, “In one breath, the governor will probate and reprobate at the same time. You don’t say one thing during the day and another at night. It will not work.”

Highlighting the governor’s obligation to adhere to the terms outlined in the agreement, Okocha emphasized, “He (Fubara) must obey the dictates of the proclamation he willingly accepted in the presence of President Tinubu.”

Furthermore, Okocha raised concerns regarding the delay in presenting the 2024 budget for Rivers State, asserting that Fubara cannot effectively govern the state without a budget in place.

Recalling Fubara’s expression of gratitude to Tinubu for mediating the crisis and pledging to uphold the terms of the peace agreement, Okocha underscored the importance of accountability in governance.

The political unrest in Rivers State stems from a confrontation between Fubara and his predecessor, Federal Capital Territory Minister Nyesom Wike, fueling tensions within the region.
