Again, Rivers Assembly threatens to impeach Gov Fubara


The Rivers State House of Assembly on Saturday threatened to impeach the state governor, Sim Fubara.

The assembly said it “will not hesitate to impeach Fubara, if it becomes the last resort to uphold the Constitution.”

Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Martin Amaewhule, disclosed this during a media briefing in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The Speaker was flanked by 26 of his colleagues.

This is as the 27 lawmakers loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, took a swipe at the former Rivers State Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council, led by Dr Abiye Sekibo, over its recent attack on Wike.

In 2023, the lawmakers had threatened to impeach the governor following his face-off with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

But in December, 26 members of the Rivers State House of Assembly had withdrawn their impeachment notice against Fubara.

This was contained in the notice of withdrawal read on the floor of the House on Wednesday.

They said the decision was made out of respect for President Bola Tinubu who had convened a reconciliation meeting between the warring parties.

DAILY POST reported that President Tinubu had brokered a peace deal between Fubara and his predecessor, Wike.
