Rivers APC accuses Gov Fubara of burning Assembly complex

Ganduje receives 27 defected lawmakers

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has accused Governor Siminalayi Fubara and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of allegedly being responsible for the fire incident that burnt down the Rivers State House of Assembly on October 29, 2023.

Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the APC in Rivers state, Tony Okocha, handed down the allegation while speaking at the APC thanksgiving dedication service at the Port Harcourt Polo Club on Sunday, New GRA Port Harcourt.

Okocha dared Governor Fubara to prove to the people of Rivers state that he and the PDP in the state are not responsible for the burning of the hallowed chamber.

He also accused Fubara of failing to constitute an investigative committee to probe the incident that has since caused a division in the Rivers State House of Assembly.

Okocha said, “He proclaimed that he was going to build on the plan of consolidation and continuity.

“What he is consolidating is to burn Rivers State House of Assembly.

“I speak as the leader of the opposition party in Rivers State, and I challenge the governor and PDP to claim and prove to Rivers State that they are not the ones responsible for the burning of the t.

“If you are the Chief Executive of a state, and an arm of government, a structure, an iconic structure for that matter, the most beautiful of all in Nigeria was set ablaze and you only went there to begin to proclaim that which will happen tomorrow let it happen today.

“And you did not set up a panel, neither did you set up a committee to find out why that inferno took place. No be you do am? It should have been the first thing to border you.”

Okocha promised members of the APC in Rivers State that the party would no longer be referred to as a “social club” and would henceforth be built on a solid foundation.
