Protesters Take Over Rivers Govt House as Wike and Fubara Clash [VIDEO]



Supporters of Governor Sim Fubara have occupied Rivers State Government House in a show of solidarity.

The group is urging the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory to allow the governor to fulfill his duties as the state’s chief executive.

Wike and his chosen candidate for the 2023 governorship election have experienced a falling out, and their dispute has become public, evolving into a struggle for Fubara’s freedom and self-determination.

NewsNow reports that on Sunday, there was a division among members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, with some initiating impeachment proceedings against Governor Fubara.

The bid to impeach the governor was rejected by Edison Ehie, the Leader of the State House of Assembly, as he believed no impeachable offense had been committed. Consequently, he was removed from his position as the majority leader.

However, NewsNow also reports that Edison was later elected Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

Speaking to reporters, some of the protesters questioned why the former governor would allegedly want to retain control of the state he governed for eight years.
