JUST IN: Fresh Crisis looms in Rivers as Fubara threatens to arrest Wike’s men

Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has issued a firm directive against the impersonation of members on a purported fake list of caretaker committee members for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

This list, which gained traction on social media and was reported in national newspapers on Thursday, was officially denounced by Fubara as ‘counterfeit and misleading’.

Following a pivotal meeting with the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, Governor Fubara clarified the situation.

According to a press release from Nelson Chukwudi, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, the discussions reaffirmed the decisions made in a prior meeting involving the NWC, the Board of Trustees, and the PDP Governors’ Forum in March regarding the authenticity of the caretaker committee members.

In light of this, a letter from the PDP National Organising Secretary, Hon Umar Bature, dated March 27, 2024, addressed to Hon. Aaron Chukwuemeka, the Chairman of the Rivers State Caretaker Committee of the PDP, was highlighted as the definitive resolution on the matter.

This correspondence solidifies the list of genuine caretaker committee members, effectively nullifying the disputed version circulating online and in the press.

Governor Fubara sternly warned against the impersonation of committee positions, stating that individuals found parading themselves based on the disputed list at any PDP office would be arrested for  ‘forgery and impersonation’.

He underscored that no form of intimidation, covert operations, futile lobbying, or the unnecessary expenditure of public resources would alter the established stance of the party on this issue.
