In a blazing revelation, former Rivers State Governor Nyesome Wike has accused current Governor Sim Fubara of masterminding a fire attack on the State’s House of Assembly. The opposition condemns the incident as a legislative desecration, intensifying political tensions.
The Rivers State Assembly is already embroiled in internal conflict, with lawmakers pushing for Fubara’s impeachment. Former Assembly Leader Edison Ehie rejects the bid, citing no impeachable offences, only to be swiftly ousted. Ehie, now the new Speaker, underscores the political turmoil gripping the region.
Governor Fubara, facing impeachment threats, challenges the accusations, questioning the motives behind the move. In a heated exchange, he insinuates the arson as retaliation for impeachment proceedings, questioning the speed and injecting concerns about ethnic politics.
The Rivers political landscape is now a powder keg as accusations and confrontations escalate, leaving the state in the grip of uncertainty.
