Marvin Yobana, the leader of the Simplified Movement in Ogoni, recently offered his perspective on the ongoing political unrest in Rivers State during an interview on Arise TV.

Yobana delved into the core of the issue, particularly the contentious dispute involving Governor Fubara and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, while underscoring the legal implications of the conflict.

Throughout the interview, Yobana emphasized his adherence to facts over hearsay or what he termed “beer parlour discussions,” where unverified claims often circulate. He referenced a purported statement by Nyesom Wike assuring defected lawmakers of the security of their seats, indicating his skepticism towards such rhetoric. Instead, he underscored the imperative of upholding the law and urged fellow citizens to do likewise.

In Yobana’s perspective, the law holds paramount importance and should be revered by all members of society, irrespective of their status or political allegiance. He reiterated the necessity for citizens to adhere to the legal framework governing the nation, stressing the significance of maintaining lawfulness amid political turbulence.

As he stated, “I don’t entertain hearsay or what we colloquially term ‘beer parlour discussions,’ where someone says not to worry, nobody can take your seat (referencing Nyesom Wike’s purported statement to defected lawmakers). The law is paramount, and we must respect it. We are law-abiding citizens of this country.”
