Fubara sought to reassure the people of Rivers State, promising to continue delivering the “dividends of democracy.” He also hinted at addressing the media regarding the matter at the “appropriate time,” keeping the public waiting in suspense.

The unfolding crisis at the Rivers State Assembly saw the removal of its leader, Edison Ehie, adding further tension to an already charged atmosphere.



The Speaker, Martin Amaewhule, led the members in serving the impeachment notice to Governor Fubara, followed by their hasty retreat as tear gas was deployed outside the Complex, causing chaos and panic.

Adding to the intrigue, a fire broke out at the Assembly Complex the previous night. While the connection between the fire and the ongoing political turmoil remains unclear, it has only fueled speculations about the motives behind the impeachment proceedings.

The exact nature and extent of the conflict between the two influential politicians remain shrouded in secrecy, leaving the public to speculate about its role in the unfolding drama.

The political future of Rivers State hangs in the balance as Governor Fubara stands defiant against impeachment allegations, while the State Assembly appears determined to pursue its course of action.
