Ogoni Warns Council Chairman Against Insulting Governor Fubara

A group of Ogoni indigenes, under the umbrella of Ogoni Development Drive (ODD), has issued a stern warning to the council chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area, Samuel Nwanosike, to stop disparaging the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

The group also appealed to the elders of the Ikwerre ethnic group in Rivers State to caution Nwanosike and make him stop attacking the governor. The group alleged that Nwanosike, who is a close associate of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister, Nyesom Wike, has a habit of disrespecting Fubara.

In a statement signed by its convener, Solomon Lenu, ODD urged the security agencies to look into Nwanosike’s activities. The statement partly read, “He is not the first to tread this shameful path and he will not be the last.

There are others who did the same and are still in our society today with higher positions and better influence.

“We want to tell him that, ‘we may preach peace, but we are not ignorant of the art of war.’ And if peace comes at the expense of our freedom, then war may be a better option.

“We are tired of the insults and mockery of our son, who by fate is the leader of our state today, a rare opportunity that took 56 years to happen.

“We ignored his rudeness the first time, thinking it was a mistake or a result of some substance abuse. And we hoped that his mentors, relatives and boss would correct him and make him see reason.”
