He highlighted the breach of constitutional principles by the governor and expressed his concern over such violations, emphasizing the importance of adhering to legal norms and standards. He asserted that the Local Government Chairmen in Rivers State who are a victim of this move by the Governor are determined to hold him accountable for his actions which contravene the principles outlined in the Nigerian Constitution regarding governance and local government autonomy.

He said in an interview with TVC, ”What we are questioning as Rivers people here is clear. Look, you are the governor of the state. You swore to an oath to protect the Constitution of Nigeria and to do to all men all manner of good irrespective of their tribe, ethnicity, or who they are. You cannot govern Rivers State outside the constitution of Nigeria.

The governor has no right to bypass me as Ikwerre LG Chairman and pay council workers. He is telling his accountant general to issue an instruction to Banks to disregard my office as the Chairman of Ikwerre Local government and go ahead and pay council workers. When you breach such a constitution, we must call it out and say this is not what the law expects you to do. I’m happy that the legal minds and the Nigeria Bar Association are listening to the matter. The governor we elected has breached the constitution of Nigeria and has gone ahead to pay Council workers or Ikwerre Local government without the approval of the Local government council Chairman.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
