The Rivers State Government has refuted claims that Governor Siminalayi Fubara dismissed some of his aides and instructed the removal of local government chairmen in response to attempts by the House Assembly to impeach him.

The Commissioner for Information and Communication, Warisenibo Johnson, stated that he has not received any directive from the Governor to make such an announcement.

Johnson, in a statement on Tuesday, said: “There had been unfounded reports making the rounds on various media platforms about His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, sacking certain categories of his aides and local council chairmen.
“This is to clarify that His Excellency has not given me such directive as the official spokesman of the State government as at today Tuesday, October 31, 2023.

“Our dear governor is a technocrat, with robust civil service background, kind hearted and a very humane person who does things according to laid down rules and with the fear of God.

“We therefore ask Rivers people and the general public to jettison such unconfirmed reports as the public will be properly informed of who may have been removed by His Excellency at the appropriate time.
“It is pertinent to note that as the Commissioner for Information and Communication, I shall keep the public updated of events in due course”.
