Planned Impeachment: Group lambasts state exco for acting against Tinubu’s order on Fubara

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Solidarity and Development Forum has denounced the state chairman of the party over the call for the impeachment of Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

The group, which made this known at a press conference on Thursday in Abuja, described the utterances by Chief Tony Okocha as reckless.

The group, in a statement co-signed by Comrade Kabir Matazu and Hon. Igwe Ude-Umanta, its convener and co-covener respectively, said a call for impeachment is a clear attempt to destabilize the government and create chaos in the state.

The APC Solidarity and Development Forum further criticised the APC chairman for his “blatant disrespect of President Bola Tinubu”

“The President himself, in his wisdom, has called for all parties involved in the disagreement to maintain the status quo and work towards a peaceful resolution,” the statement said.

“Governor Fubara has heeded this call and has demonstrated his commitment to the vision of inclusivity and good governance that our dear president has upheld since assuming office.

“In the reality of having to work with people of diverse political affiliations, President Tinubu has successfully built a government devoid of nepotism and marginalization.

“It will be unfair, and unwise for any party member, or individual not to resonate in the same frequency with our president. It is very disheartening to witness Chief Tony Okocha’s unguided utterances, which not only disregard the president’s call for peace but also pose a threat to the stability and progress of our beloved party.

“We are appalled by the Chairman’s unguided fervour and lack of understanding of the complex challenges facing Rivers State. His actions are a dent in the respectable image and good representation of what our party stands for.

“It Is evident to everyone that Chief Tony Okocha has lost sight of the vision and principles of the APC, as his misguided loyalty has compromised the integrity and status of our party.

“By calling for the impeachment of Governor Fubara without justifiable cause, Mr Tony has not only undermined the unity and cohesion of our party but also endangered the very foundation of our democratic system.”

The group, therefore, called on Okocha to resign immediately from his position as the Rivers State APC Chairman, adding that his “continued stay in office will only serve to further destabilize our party and the state at large.”
