Boniface Emerengwa Pledges Loyalty To Fubara by Nemere2020: 11:23am On Mar 26
RIVERS REPS MEMBER, EMERENGWA, PLEDGES SUPPORT AND LOYALTY TO GOVERNOR FUBARA

...AS REPS MEMBER JOINS SIMPLIFIED MOVEMENT

Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has accepted the pledge of loyalty from the member representing Ikwerre/Emohua Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Boniface Emerengwa, saying that his Government would never be distracted from delivering on its promises to Rivers people.

The Governor made the commitment when he received the ranking member of the House of Representatives, who visited Governor Fubara at Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday evening, to show solidarity and support to the Governor.

Hon Emerengwa hails from Ikwerre Local Government Area, the Headquarters of all the four Ikwerre-speaking LGAs, which also includes Port Harcourt City Local Government Area, Obio/Akpor, and Emohua.

The Reps member explained that he was throwing his total support and loyalty to the Administration because it was undisputable that the Governor is both the leader of the Poeples Democratic Party (PDP) and the State.

Elected House of Representatives member in 2015, Hon Emerengwa, said he had come to the realisation that it was unnecessary and futile to continue to struggle and fight over who controls the party and leads the State when the party and the nation's constitutions were clear on the issue.

A very strong politician in Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality, Hon Emerengwa, pledged to mobilise thousands of his supporters in his constituency and lead them to join the Governor in his efforts of take the State to heights of sustained peace and development.

The former chairman of Ikwerre Local Government Area said that Rivers people had made their choice through their votes and gave their mandate to Governor Fubara.

He said, having secured electorial victory on March 18, 2023, which had been affirmed by the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Governor Fubara had become the Number One Citizen of the State as prescribed by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

He noted that only the blind will not see the giant strides Governor Fubara was already making in various sectors of the State, adding that the best way to assist the State grow as Rivers people was to support the Governor in every way possible to achieve sustainable peace and accelerate inclusive development of the State.

Hon Emerengwa was accompanied to Government House by three other House of Representatives members, Hon Awaji-Inombek Abiante of Andoni-Opobo/Nkoro Federal Constituency; Hon Boma Goodhead of Akuku-Toru/Asari-Toru Federal Constituency; and Hon Anderson Allison Igbiks of Okrika-Ogu/Bolo Federal Constituency, who are strong supporters of Governor Fubara.

This new pledge of allegiance is coming in the wake of a flurry of resignations of elected politicians across the local government areas, who have vowed to support Governor Fubara to succeed.

Notable among them is the Leader of Obio/Akpor Legislative Council and Councillor representing Ward 9, Rt. Hon. Achor Prince Nna, who resigned on March 7.

Obio/Akpor Ward 9 covers Rumuepirikom and Elioparanwo communities, two critical power blocks in Obio/Akpor and the State.

According to Nna, "This resignation is hitherto borne out of my personal conviction to align with the truth in the face of the current political issues in Rivers State... My Chairman, I want to align with the progressive minds to liberate and develop Rivers State in tune with the SIMplified Movement".

On March 18, Supervisor for Youths and Sports in Obio/Akpor Local Government Council and member representing Obio/Akpor Ward 17, Hon Newman Ogbonda, also resigned to join the Simplified Movement.

Obio/Akpor Ward 17 includes Rumuolumeni, Mgbuosimini, Nkpor, Mgbuodohia, Azumini, Minikpiti and Mgbuakara communities.

In his letter, Ogbonda said, "I officially write to resign my position as the Supervisor for Youths and Sports in Obio/Akpor Local Government Council to clear my good conscience and to align myself with the Administration of the Governor, His Excellency, Sir Siminalayi Joseph Fubara, GSSRS, the Executive Governor of Rivers State and his vision to better the State."

Ogbonda's action followed the resignation on March 17 of the President General of Akpor Consultative Assembly, Chief (Barrister) Hanny Woko, a powerful politician from the area, to pitch tent with Governor Fubara's Government and the SIMplified Movement.

Also on March 20, the Supervisory Councillor for Health and Social Welfare in Asari-Toru Local Government Council, Dr Ipalibo Jenberetoa George resigned his position to join the Simplified Movement of Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

According to him, "I have taken this decision in view of my firm belief that throwing full weight behind the Administration of the genial, humane and prople-oriented Administration of the Executive Governor, Amaopusenibo Siminalayi Fubara, GSSRS, is the absolute best way to go at this point in the development of Rivers State and in the light of the challenges she currently faces."

It would be recalled that Hon Emerengwa is an accomplished lawyer and politician, who was a former Ikwerre Local Government Chairman between January 1, 1999 and January 1, 2002, and former Rivers State Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2007.

He had served as Ward Councilor between January 1, 1987 and January 1, 1990; and Council Secretary between January 1, 1990 and January 1, 1999.

Emerengwa was LGA Chairman when wike was Chairman so he feels he's on the same level with wike, moreover he's doing his 3rd term in Federal House of Representatives and possibly his last so he has nothing to lose, he has to make as much money as he can make before 2027..

Wike still has the upper hand with 8 out of 13 Federal Representatives and 3 senators on his side

You can't win an executive in Nigeria politics with God like power being accord to them.
forget constitutional line of power.
After president na governor oo
Wike knows this and he used the full power of executive during his time so he shouldn't be surprised whatever is coming for him.

Fubara can declare Wike wanted and not even the president can stop that.
that's the glimpse of the power an executive governor have in Nigeria.
no be anybody papa birthright.
Executive power dey sweet sha that's why Wike is already feeling like a Governor forgetting that Tinubu can wake up one dey and fire his sorry ass

I'm not surprised you rely on social media for information. I blame wike for bringing odili back from the dead and giving him more than what he deserves, wike is the reason you social media users think odili can influence an Election in Rivers state

Nobody sends Wike anymore. Fubara is the executive governor now. Most politicians survive on government patronage in forms of construction and procurement contracts. Wike can no longer assure them of these benefits.

Na who nor get sense go still dey do gragra follow Wike. FCT ministry money has a lot of restrictions.

is wike not odilis boy as much as go round?

Is Amaechi not odilis boy?

Where was odili when Amaechi was governor?

You're always capping trash, wikes men are still in tact, most of the people on fubara side are people that fought wike in 2023 election to support Atiku and Tonye Cole, you know nothing, why should I take you serious when you don't know that there are 13 Federal constituencies in Rivers state? Matter of fact list the people that left wike to be on sims side, let's talk about their involvement in sims election in 2023

Who gives a fhuck about Jonathan and odili, how many election have they influenced in Rivers state in the last 5 years? You better focus on your biafra, Peter obi and igbo matters
