I committed no offence, can’t be impeached – Gov Fubara

Rivers State governor, Siminalayi Fubara, stormed the Rivers State House of Assembly complex in Port Harcourt on Monday morning amid an alleged plot by lawmakers loyal to the immediate-past governor of the state and now minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, to impeach him from office.

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, Hon. Edison Ehie.

There was an allegation that the plot to impeach Ehie, who was deputy speaker of the 9th House of Assembly, was to pave the 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 offense to warrant impeachment by the lawmakers.

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

The governor assured the people of the state of getting the dividends of democracy, promising to speak on the crisis at the appropriate time.
