Rivers State has been caught in a little political tussle in the past few days.

How a state local government chairman could boldly dare the sitting governor remains a shock to many.

Rivers Gov., Fubara & Nwanosike

While some are of the opinion that he may be within his political rights, others don’t share the same school of thought.

The Chairman, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, Dr. Samuel Nwanosike, has dared Governor Siminalayi Fubara to “show his face.”

This he said while standing on the fact that he will not vacate his office at the end of his tenure on June 16.

In a video, Nwanosike directly addressed the state governor, stating his intention to remain in office beyond the stipulated date.


Also, he cited an extension of tenure by state lawmakers under the leadership of Martin Amaghule as justification due to the state government’s failure to conduct local government elections.

In addition, Nwanosike asserted that he would continue in his role and warned that the people of Ikwerre LG would resist any attempt to remove him from office.

“Let them come and try to remove me if they dare.

The countdown begins; 23 more days to go.”


“Who are you to say Martins Amaewhule is not the Rivers House of Assembly Speaker?

“Rivers State Failed In His Duty”

If Amaewhule says that because the governor of Rivers State failed in his duty to conduct local government elections.


“And that I, Dr. Nwanosike Samuel, whose tenure was ended by the oath of office I took and the certificate of return I was issued when I contested my second tenure election. I should remain in office.
