The Rivers Elders and Leaders Forum have cautioned Governor Siminialayi Fubara concerning the re-appointment of pro-Wike commissioners.
This was made known by a member of the Forum, Chief Anabs Sara-Igbe as he cautioned the governor Fubara not to let down his guard around the commissioners.
Recall that the commissioners had resigned their positions in the heat of the recent political crisis in the state.
After the signing of the 8-point resolution between Fubara and Wike at the Presidential Villa, the Rivers governor recalled the commissioners.
Meanwhile, the Elders Forum has described Fubara’s action as illegal, stressing that the governor cannot share his house with sworn enemies, according to Politics Nigeria.
“We have continued to maintain that you (Fubara) cannot protect your house with your sworn enemies. When your enemies are known, you push them away or you keep them at arms-length. But there is this saying that you cannot allow your enemies to be your guard because they will one day assassinate you,” he said.
Sara-Igbe noted that the Rivers Elders were still in court, challenging the resolution reached at a reconciliatory meeting convened by President Bola Tinubu in Abuja in December.
“If the court interpretes in our favour that the eight-point agenda cannot stand, then all he has done would become null and void. But if the law says otherwise then we can now discuss the matter after we have exhausted it because we are going to drag this case to the Supreme Court,” he added.
