Fubara Removes Rivers Traditional Council Chairman

Chairman of the State Supreme Council of Traditional Rulers Council, in Rivers State, Eze Sergeant Awuse has been removed by the State Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

Awuse’s removal follows the governor’s announcement on Friday during a special meeting with the traditional rulers at the Banquet Hall of the Government House, Port Harcourt, the state capital.

With immediate effect, Eze Chike Wodo, replaced Awuse after Fubara appointed him to take over as the new chairman of the council, saying that the office could not remain vacant.

Speaking at the meeting, the governor said Awuse has not been leading the council effectively for a while due to his alleged role in the ongoing crisis in the state.

Fubara said Eze Ohna Sergeant Chidi Awuse was removed following the inactivity and the absence of effective leadership of the council under him.  He also described Awuse as an unstable character, noting that he has been playing double standards since the political crisis in the state.

“It is like your chairman has run away. Maybe when your chairman is ready, he will write to me. If he gets the approval, he can then come for the meeting.

“But you already know his position. He is not a stable man, he is not a stable character. He cannot say something in the morning and say another thing in the evening.

“It is because of that he decided to hide his head. You have to bear with him until when God will help us remove this problem you are having. By the grace of God, it will be resolved soon,” Fubara said.

Going memory lane, the former governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, had replaced the then Chairman of the Council, King Dandeson Douglas Jaja, with Awuse.

While the political crisis in the state continues, the State House of Assembly, led by Martin Amaewhule, promulgated a law that barred Fubara from interfering with the leadership of the traditional council.
