G60 Reveals Why Opposition Governors Are Afraid To Identify With Govs Fubara, Abba Yusuf


The Coalition of Opposition Lawmakers in the House of Representatives on the aegis of ‘G60’ has taken a swipe at the opposition Governors and leaders over their silence on the ongoing crisis in Rivers and Kano States.

The G60 pointedly said that the docile position of the opposition leaders was based on the fact that some of them are presently awaiting for Certificate of Occupancy, so they are scared of acting against the minister of the FCT thus, prefer to be drinking champagne with the oppressors as against ragging with anger or assembling to show solidarity by visiting.

The Coalition particularly described as shameful the fact that opposition governors are scared of going to Rivers and Kano to show solidarity to Governors Fubara and Yusuf to avoid being scolded by Wike and other pro-APC leaders.

Spokesman of the C60, Hon Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, who stated these in a statement on Monday, June 24, 2024, expressed serious concern that opposition Governors particularly those on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have not deemed it fit and proper to pay a solidarity visit to their opposition members and counterparts in Rivers, Governor Similanayi Fubara and Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State.

Ugochinyere noted that since 2022, following his loss at the presidential primaries, the present Minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike has been igniting crisis in the party with no sanction against him in addition of endless plot to deny the NNPP their hard earned victory in Kano State by some politicians hibernating in Abuja.

He therefore charged the governors to sit up, and take appropriate actions as leaders of the opposition, stressing that it is the only way to restore the glory of the PDP and the opposition family.

Ugochinyere therefore charged the PDP as the leading opposition party to take the lead and cleanse its house of political sabotage by ensuring the emergence of uncompromising leadership that have the capacity to galvanise the opposition family to have focus and direction.

The G60 also faulted the assertion by some stakeholders that the FCT minister should not be suspended owing to his long-standing contribution to the party over the years, stressing that Nyesom Wike has since left the party following his activities before and during the 2023 elections, particularly with his acceptance of the ministerial slot from the ruling APC.

Ugochinyere noted that even before his fallout with his successor, Governor Fubara,  the FCT minister does not only want to maintain the position of the PDP leader in Rivers but also that of the APC in the state, as he has shown through the appointment of his loyalists as members of the caretaker committee of the PDP.

In the words of Ugochinyere; “The worst thing that can happen to the developing country with economic challenges is a compromised opposition leadership. One year after, we don’t have a party and opposition leadership that can give us direction and charge us.

“We have a party leadership and Governors who doesn’t want to get involved in rebuilding the party or opposition after woeful outing caused mainly by sabotage.

“Now 60 percent of our party Governors and party leadership are behaving like learners because they can’t stand up to cut to size some hired ruling party agents who have a contract to destroy the party.

“I heard some are now awaiting for Certificate of Occupancy, so they are scared of acting. Imagine the opposition party base is under attack in Kano and Rivers but opposition Governors are drinking champagne with the oppressors and are not ragging with anger or assembling to show solidarity by visiting.”

They should learn from when Tinubu led just one party, the AC to ignite a battle that rebuilt the opposition then into forming an alliance that crushed the PDP. It’s Time to wake up,” he stressed.
