Fubara Voted Against Tinubu In Last Election – Rivers APC Chairman

The Rivers Caretaker Committee Chairman of the APC, Chief Tony Okocha, has said Governor Simnalayi Fubara did not vote for President Bola Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.

Okocha said this during a protest carried out by some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against Fubara’s alleged plan to demolish the House of Assembly Quarters in Port Harcourt.

Among those who participated in the protest were Desmond Akawor, Kingsley Chindah, Olaka Nwogu, among others.

The APC boss said the Rivers governor claims he would always support Tinubu, but he never voted for him in the last year.

He said, “This goes to show the world that Rivers people are united. We are one. The speaker had taken us round the premises and had given us the synopsis of what transpired when the governor in a Gestapo manner cane with thugs to harass the inhabitants here.”

“27 lawmakers are members of our party and we owe them the responsibility to protect and defend them. At every twist and turn, the governor attempts to see how he can curry political patronage by claiming that he supports Mr. President. It is not true. It is a fluke.

“The world should know that they are not supporters of Mr. President. They want to lash on it to see whether they can continue to engage in their illegality. As chairman of APC, Rivers State, I have taken a look at the details of voting in the past election and it is clear to me that the governor did not vote for Mr. President.”
