JUST IN: Rivers Lawmakers Withdraws Fubara’s Impeachment Notice | Read Why
The impeachment notice sent to governor Siminalaye Fubara of Rivers state by members of the state House of Assembly, has been withdrawn.
The Lawmakers reached the resolution to withdraw the notice during their Wednesday sitting in Port Harcourt.
According to the Lawmakers, they resolved to withdraw the impeachment notice because of the respect they have for president Bola Tinubu.
Recall that Tinubu had in a closed door meeting on Monday, discussed with Fubara, Nyesom Wike, and other interested parties in the political crisis that rocked the state. The parties involved signed a peace pact which has however, generated so many reactions.
The conflict between Fubara and Nyesom Wike, his god father and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, split lawmakers in the House, with 27 of them decamping from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a series of events that unfolded during the feud, parallel sittings emerged, an impeachment plot against the governor was uncovered, the Assembly complex was demolished, and a wave of resignations swept through the cabinet of pro-Wike commissioners in Fubara’s commissioner.
