Following the removal of the House Leader, Hon. Edison Ehie on Monday, the Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, has stormed the State House of Assembly complex in Port Harcourt over plots to impeach him.

It was rumoured that the House Leader was to be removed and impeachment processes commenced against the Governor on Monday morning.

The governor’s visit to the Assembly complex was almost at the same time when 23 members of the House, led by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Martins Amaewhule, sat to impeach the House Leader, increasing the level of threat to impeach Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

There was an allegation that the plot to impeach Ehie, who was deputy speaker of the 9th House of Assembly, was to pave way for the commencement of impeachment proceedings against the governor.

Addressing his supporters, who are mostly members of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), in front of the House of Assembly complex, Governor Fubara said he has not committed any offence to warrant impeachment by the lawmakers.

He said: “Let them come out and tell Rivers people the offence I have committed to warrant any impeachment,” the governor said while addressing his supporters.”
