In a significant political development, Boniface Emerengwa, a member of the House of Representatives from Rivers State, has publicly declared his support for Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

This brings the total number of House of Representatives members openly supporting Governor Fubara to five, out of the thirteen members from the state.

During a visit to Governor Fubara in Port Harcourt, Emerengwa, who represents the Ikwerre/Emohua Federal Constituency, denounced his long-standing political alliance with former Governor Nyesom Wike.

According to a statement by the governor’s chief press secretary, Nelson Chukwudi, Emerengwa condemned the struggle by some politicians to be recognized as leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the political leaders of the state, instead of the governor.

He emphasized that the party and the nation’s constitution explicitly bestow such roles on elected governors.

Emerengwa, who was first elected in 2015, also commended the achievements of Governor Fubara in the state and expressed his belief that the governor deserves the support of the people to further develop the state.

Governor Fubara, while accepting the pledge of loyalty from the federal lawmaker, assured the people that his government would remain focused on delivering on its promises to the people of Rivers State.

This recent show of support adds to the growing number of lawmakers in the House of Representatives who identify with Governor Fubara.

Other representatives who have openly declared their support include Awaji-Inombek Abiante (PDP, Andoni/Opobo-Nkoro), Boma Goodhead (PDP, Asari Toru/Akuku Toru), Anderson Allison (APC, Okrika/Ogu-Bolo), and Umezuruike (Labour Party, Port Harcourt Constituency 1).

While there have been resignations by politicians across various local government areas, including the leader of the Obio/Akpor Legislative Council and the councillor representing Wike’s ward, Achor Nna, both Governor Fubara and his predecessor, Wike, seem confident in their political structures.

Despite efforts by President Bola Tinubu to broker a truce between the two, both camps appear unfazed and determined to assert their political strength in Rivers State.
