Public affairs analyst Ken Okolugbo has warned that Rivers State Governor Fubara’s handling of Justice Kayode Omotosho’s judgement may have unintended consequences. In an interview with TVC, Okolugbo cautioned that Fubara’s failure to appeal the judgement or acknowledge its validity may be seen as “playing with fire.” Okolugbo argued that Omotosho’s judgement, which recognised the lawmakers’ defection, may ultimately “come to hunt” Fubara if he continues to disregard it.

He urged Fubara to either appeal the judgement or cease “forum shopping” (seeking favourable rulings from different courts) to resolve the political impasse in Rivers State. Okolugbo highlighted the risks of Fubara’s approach and the need for a more strategic and respectful engagement with the judiciary.

According to him, “If there was no judicial notice before Justice Kayode Omotosho stating that these Lamwakers have defected and that judgement has been given, I have said it not once, not twice, that the Governor is playing with that (Omotosho’s) judgement; that judgement might eventually come to hunt him. He should either appeal that judgement or stop maybe this forum shopping that has led us to this situation we find in Rivers State.”….Sée Móre
