Rivers Governor’s Loyalist Removed As ‘Impeachment Plot’ Thickens After Fire Disaster

The crisis rocking Rivers State House of Assembly took another dimension on Monday as the house removed Edison Ehie as the majority leader.

Ehie, our reporter learnt, is a strong supporter of Governor Similanayi Fubara. He was said to have frustrated the initial attempt to initiate impeachment proceedings against the governor.

Announcing the removal of the majority leader at the Assembly sitting in Port Harcourt, the state capital, the speaker, Martins Amaehwule, said he was removed for not attending the assembly sitting.

Amaehwule said about 17 members of the House supported the removal of the house.

In the meantime, security agencies have taken over the entire complex of the Assembly.

Unknown arsonists set ablaze the chamber of the Assembly. The move our reporter learnt was aimed at staling the impeachment process against the governor, who has reportedly fallen out with his predecessor and current Minister of the federal capital territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike.
