Members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, on Monday morning, begun impeachment process against the state governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
Consequently, the Assembly has directed the Clerk of the House to serve Governor Fubara with the impeachment notice.
The Assembly had earlier impeached the Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Edison Ehie, a loyalist of the Governor to apparently pave the way for the impeachment proceedings against the governor.
Governor Fubara had also stormed the Assembly complex on Monday, where he addressed his supporters, saying he had not committed any impeachable offence to warrant the move against him.
The political crisis brewing in the Garden City State was a fallout of a soured relationship between the governor and his political godfather, who is the immediate-past governor of the state and now Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike.
The governor had while addressing his supporters in the state government House, said that he’s not afraid of impeachment but it must follow the due process.
