Amidst escalating tensions, the Rivers State House of Assembly has issued a stern warning to Governor Similanayi Fubara, threatening impeachment if he fails to honor the peace accord signed during the state’s crisis.

Speaker Martins Amaehwule, speaking at a press conference in Port Harcourt, emphasized the Assembly’s constitutional duties and its commitment to upholding the law.


He urged those advising the governor to remind him of his obligation to abide by the peace agreement brokered by President Bola Tinubu.

Amaehwule emphasized that while impeachment is a last resort, the Assembly will not hesitate to act if necessary, asserting that no individual is above the law, including the governor.

Highlighting the withdrawal of a previous impeachment notice as a gesture of goodwill, Amaehwule lamented the governor’s alleged disregard for the state’s laws and constitution.

He criticized the governor’s failure to enact an Appropriation Law, citing ongoing concerns about governance.

Despite facing challenges, including attacks on the Assembly premises and personal residences, Amaehwule assured the people of Rivers State of the Assembly’s unwavering commitment to its constitutional duties.

The rift between the assembly and Governor Fubara stems from his fallout with Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, further complicating the political landscape in the state.
