Abure, in a statement on Tuesday, said the dissolution is with immediate effect.

He said those “who were at the helm of affairs in Rivers State when our presidential mandate was openly stolen in Rivers State should step aside until full investigation is completed on what happened on that day”.

Abure said he has lost confidence in the ability of the compromised State Executive Council led by Deinye Pepple to lead the campaign for the governorship and  State House of Assembly elections come March 11.

He urged all Obidients in the state to disregard all comments and actions by Pepple. Abure said Beatrice Itubo remains the Labour Party candidate for the Saturday’s governorship election in the state.
