The Conference observed that in spite of the constitutional provisions that grant Financial Autonomy to the State Legislatures, the implementation has been observed in breach.

The Conference appealed to the relevant political leaders in Rivers State to explore peaceful means to resolve the near impasse situation between the Legislative and Executive Arms of government of the state.
