Ken Okolugbo, a public affairs analyst, has expressed concerns over the legal approach adopted by Rivers State Governor Fubara in his ongoing dispute with the legislature. In an interview with TVC from 3:59, Okolugbo suggested that Fubara’s assertion that no state high court has jurisdiction in the matter may be misguided. Okolugbo argued that if Fubara’s attorney-general fails to challenge the court’s jurisdiction, it may indicate poor legal advice.

He further reasoned that if Fubara believes state high courts lack jurisdiction, then Justice CN Wale’s declaration of the lawmakers’ seats as vacant may also be deemed invalid. Okolugbo’s comments highlight the complexity and potential flaws in Fubara’s legal strategy.

According to him, “If the attorney general does not also come to challenge the jurisdiction of the court from what he was saying in his press conference, it also bothers me because that shows that Fubara is not being advised properly because he has said no state high court has jurisdiction. So if he also says no state high court has jurisdiction, it therefore also follows that Justice CN Wale has no jurisdiction in declaring the seats of the lawmakers vacant.”….Sée Móre
