His resignation was contained in a letter dated March 7, and addressed to the council chairperson. Nna specifically expressed gratitude to Wike, the former governor of Rivers state, who is now the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), for the opportunity to represent him (Wike) in the legislative council.

The resignation letter was posted on Facebook where Nna also made a live video confirming it.

In what may be regarded as a political blow to the FCT minister, Nna declared support to Governor Fubara. He noted that he wants to align with the governor to “liberate” the state.

“This resignation is borne out of my conviction to align with the truth in the face of the current political issues in Rivers State, coupled with the unwarranted intimidation, marginalisation, coercion, bullying and arm-twisting from some leaders of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area,” Nna said.

“If you say the truth, you die. If you lie, you die. Better to say the truth and die,” he added, referencing a popular remark by a former Kogi State senator, Dino Melaye.

Recall that Fubara and his predecessor, Wike, have been engaged in a fierce tussle over the control of governance and politics in Rivers. Majority of the members of the Rivers house of assembly are loyal to Wike.

To end the political crisis in the state, President Bola Tinubu brokered a controversial peace deal between Fubara and Wike recently.
