Following the dissolution of the Rivers State Executive Council of the Labour Party by its National Chairman, Julius Abure for endorsing the PDP Governorship candidate Sim Fubara, the South South zonal chairman of the party, Reuben Favour has said that Deinye Pepple remains chairman of the party in the state.
Favour, during a press briefing on Wednesday said the National Chairman has no powers to dissolve the state Executive Council.
Recall that the party in the state had during a press briefing endorsed Fubara, noting that the decision to support him was due to his senatorial district, Rivers South-East, having yet to produce a governor since the state was created in 1967.
He also said part of the reason they adopted SIM was “due to news making rounds on social media that our governorship candidate, Mrs Beatrice Itubo, has stepped down and adopted the All Progressives Congress candidate, in order for us not to remain in the dark, the party in line with the 23 LGA chairmen has decided to support a credible candidate irrespective of the party affiliation.“
