In a significant turn of events, the Rivers State House of Assembly has initiated impeachment proceedings against Governor Siminialayi Fubara, marking a pivotal moment in the state’s political landscape.
The legislative body’s actions came to the forefront when, in a bold move, they served an official impeachment notice to Governor Fubara. This decision was preceded by the removal of the House Leader, Edison Ehie, who was widely perceived to be aligned with the Governor’s interests.
