By

Hon. Enemi Alabo George, a member of the Rivers State House of Assembly, did not mince his words when he called out Governor Sim Fubara for his reckless and violent actions. He boldly stated, “I dare you today, Sim Fubara.

 

”You may have had the guts to break the gates of the Rivers State House of Assembly quarters and force your way in, but let me tell you, you are nothing but a small man. Your threats and harassment, shooting and inducing fear into the wives and children of Assembly members are nothing but cowardly acts.”

George went on to remind Fubara of his past misdeeds, saying, “You burnt the hallowed chambers of the House of Assembly, attacked the residence of the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, and even demolished the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex. Despite all this, we did not answer you, we thought it was just the madness of a minute. But know this, you can never break me.”

He further emphasized, “I have respected our friendship for a long time, but now, I refuse to hold back any longer. You know where I live, you know my apartment, why didn’t you come? I worked hard for you to become Governor, I even mobilized professionals from all works and corners of life to support you. But now, I will never bow to baal. You are nothing but a small man, and I will not be intimidated by you.”

On Thursday, May 9th, the House of Representatives made a commendable move by ordering the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to suspend the enforcement of the cybercrime levy introduced by the apex bank. This decision was made to ensure that the principles outlined in section 44(2a) of the Cybercrime Act are adhered to, and that Nigerians are not confused or misled in any way by the circular issued by the CBN.

The House of Representatives expressed their concern about the potential misunderstanding that could arise from the circular issued by the CBN, and urged the bank to retract the previous circular promptly and release a new one that aligns with the provisions of the Act.

This action was taken in response to a pressing issue raised by Minority Leader Kingsley Chinda (PDP, Rivers) on behalf of all members. The House’s decision shows their commitment to promoting fairness, transparency, and accountability in Nigeria’s financial sector.
