Gov. Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers says there is no provision for tenure elongation for elected Local Government Chairmen in the 1999 Nigerian Constitution (as Amended).

Fubara made this known while addressing newsmen at the end of a security council meeting with heads of security agencies in Port Harcourt.

The governor said that the security council meeting was called because of the threat to the peace of the state brewing from the tenure expiration of the outgone local government council chairmen.

”We will fearlessly lead the way to ensure that peace continues to prevail in the state while protecting all patriotic supporters for their stand on the path of truth.

”The law on local government tenure is unambiguous. The court clearly affirmed the position of the law.

“The law is the law, there is no extension of the local government tenure in it. The court says so,” he said.

The governor promised to protect his supporters and resist any ”grand plan to arrest” them.

Fubara thanked the media and the peace-loving people of the state for their support and urged everyone to continue to remain law-abiding for the unity and progress of the State. (NAN)
