Rivers State elders led by former Governor, Rufus Ada-George have condemned impeachment move against Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

This is contained in a communique issued at the end of an emergency meeting of the elders and leaders in Port Harcourt.

It was signed by Ada-George, pioneer spokesman of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, Chief Anabs Sara-Igbe and 12 others.

They expressed concern that attempt to impeach the governor barely six months in office without giving reasons was unacceptable.

“The Forum condemns every form of violence and lawlessness in Rivers State and therefore demands proper investigation of the crisis and those responsible be brought to justice.

“The Forum reviewed the demolition of the Rivers State House of Assembly by the Rivers State Government and urges the government to expedite action on rebuilding the demolished House of Assembly complex.

“This is so that lawmakers will continue their legislative business at the permanent site within the shortest possible time.

“The Forum condemns in its entirety the misuse of Rivers people’s political power vested in politicians by the people for personal gains and interest.

“We condemn in its entirety, the recent defection of 27 lawmakers without recourse to their constituents.”

They urged the judiciary and all security agencies to be wary and alive in discharging their responsibilities in order not to worsen the already tensed atmosphere in Rivers State.

The elders called on President Bola Tinubu, to consolidate on his earlier intervention as the consequences of inaction may not only affect Rivers State, the Niger Delta region but the Federal Government.
