Fubara Announces Plan to Present 2025 Budget, Insists Amaewhule; Others Lose Seats

Rivers State governor Siminalayi Fubara notes that his government will shortly present the 2025 budget after starting work on it.

he said the process is continuous even if the Martin Amaewhule-led Assembly has urged him should present the 2024 budget proposal.

Governor Fubara said this while speaking with a group from Etche and Omuma Local Government Areas who paid him a solidarity visit at the government house in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

Saying they were not real, he advised the people to disregard the calls from the Amaewhule gang.

Before he found that the Assembly members had left the Peoples Democratic Party to join the All Progressives Congress, Governor Fubara stated he had wished to assist the lawmakers.

Although he did not specify how he meant to assist the legislators, it would be possible that he rejected the political remedies suggested in the Presidential Peace Pact.

He claimed that those who declared their defection in December 2023, Martin Amaewhule and others, already missed their seats.

“I wished to assist them.” We were all aware of what transpired across and their crossing technique. Our God guided them to do that mistake.

“They are gone; they are gone.“

The Governor clarified that in December 2023 Edison Ehie, the legally acknowledged Speaker at the time—who now serves as his Chief of Staff—announced the empty seats of the defected legislators.

He reassured them that the budget for 2025 will give agriculture, healthcare, and education first priority—qualities that fit the need of the delegation mostly involved in farming.

Governor Fubara further said that his government is collaborating with the police to settle the herders-farmers conflict in both local government areas for peace and higher production.
