Fubara Replaces Sergeant Awuse as Rivers Traditional Council Chairman

Governor Siminialayi Fubara has replaced Eze Sergeant Awuse as the Chairman of the State Supreme Council of Traditional Rulers. The decision was announced during a Special Meeting of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Port Harcourt.

Fubara appointed Eze Ohna Apara, His Royal Majesty, Eze Chike Worlu Wodo, as the new chairman. This change comes amid political turbulence between Governor Fubara and his predecessor, Chief Nyesom Wike.Previously, Chief Wike had replaced the then Chairman of the Council, King Dandeson Douglas Jaja, with Chief Sergeant Awuse. However, the State House of Assembly later enacted a law preventing the State Governor from interfering with the traditional council’s leadership.

Governor Fubara cited Awuse’s alleged role in the state’s crisis as the reason for the replacement. He described Awuse as an unstable character who had been playing double standards. Fubara assured that the office would not remain vacant and expressed hope for a resolution to the ongoing problems.
