In a dramatic turn of events, the Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, has executed a strategic move that seemingly thwarted the ongoing plot to impeach him. This maneuver comes on the heels of rising tension within the state’s political landscape.
The Governor made an unexpected yet decisive decision to remove the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Martin Amaewhule, and swiftly replaced him with Rt. Hon. Ehie Edison, effectively altering the dynamics of the legislative body.
Earlier reports say that a group of lawmakers, allegedly loyal to the former governor, Nyesom Wike, had reportedly signed an impeachment notice against Governor Fubara.
However, Governor Fubara’s move to install a new Speaker appears to have disrupted the plans of those seeking his removal.
While details of the political maneuvering behind the scenes remain shrouded in secrecy, it is clear that the governor is taking proactive measures to protect his position.
The emergence of Rt. Hon. Ehie Edison as the new Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly raises questions about the political allegiances and loyalties within the state’s legislative body.
