The leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, Chief Edwin Clark, has accused Federal Capital Territory Minister, Nyesom Wike, of being behind the impeachment plot against the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
The elder statesman, during a media briefing in Abuja on Monday, stressed that the FCT minister was plotting the impeachment of his successor.
Clark, however, urged President Bola Tinubu to call Wike and the security forces in Rivers State to order.
He said: “I have been greatly disturbed by the reported developments in Rivers State in the last 24 hours.
“I have been reliably informed that there is a plot to unlawfully remove Governor Siminalaye Fubara of Rivers State, who has spent only about five months in office.
“I understand the sad episode is being orchestrated by the immediate past Governor of Rivers State and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mr Nyesom Wike.
“And that the intention is to remove the Governor, force his deputy, Professor Ngozi Odu, to resign, and install the Speaker of the House of Assembly, another Ikwerre person as the governor of the state.
“Let me warn strongly, we won’t allow that to happen!
“President Bola Tinubu must call Nyesom Wike and the security agencies in Rivers State to order, to avert any untold crisis in Rivers State.”
