The Ijaw National Congress has berated the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, over what it described as his alleged grand plot to impeach Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers state.
The INC, in a press statement signed by its President, Prof. Benjamin Ogle Okaba, accused Wike of being the brain of the grand plot to impeach Fubara unlawfully.
The statement read partly, “The INC considers this development very worrisome and capable of generating an unwarranted state of insecurity and instability that can throw the entire Niger Delta and the Nigerian economy into serious crises.
“The INC condemns in its entirety this barbaric, selfish, nepotistic and unconstitutional act capable of derailing the process of democratic consolidation in Nigeria.
“The INC calls on Mr President and Commander in Chief President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to call his FCT Minister to order. The INC also calls on all jaw sons, daughters and friends to rally their support for the Governor of River state as an injustice to one jaw man is an injustice to over forty (40) million Ijaw people worldwide.
“The ljaw Nation is watching closely and will act decisively and appropriately at the right time.”
