Wike vs Fubara: No Individual Can Pocket Rivers — Asari Dokubo

Asari Dokubo has weighed in on the ongoing political tension between Nyesom Wike and Siminalayi Fubara, asserting that no individual can dominate or control Rivers State.

Former Niger Delta militant group, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has warned that no individual will be allowed to pocket Rivers State.

Dokubo said only one person can be governor of Rivers State at a time.

He spoke amid the crisis in Rivers State caused by the expiration of the tenure of local government chairmen.

Dokubo charged the former Chairmen to accept the end of their three-year tenure in good faith and avoid causing a problem.

Addressing his followers in Port Harcourt, Dokubo said: “Local government tenure has expired today, June 17, 2024. They should quietly go home. If they want to seek re-election in accordance with the constitution, they should do so.

“But there is no tenure elongation in the constitution. Their position is tenure-bound and that tenure has expired. Let them not cause unnecessary problems for the people of the state. And I want to advise young people: look, don’t allow yourselves to be used.

“Only one man can be governor of Rivers State at a time. We would not have two governors at a time. The people of Rivers State are bigger than Muhajid Asari Dokubo.

“Rivers State is bigger than any individual. No individual can take Rivers State people for a ride and pocket us. It is not possible.

“The people are showing people’s power. The people have gone on their own to take over local government secretariats because it is about the people, and nobody can say that we voted for three years’ tenure for a chairman and the chairman should exceed one second of that tenure.”
