The All Progressives Congress (APC) has directed the Rivers State House of Assembly, led by Rt. Hon. Martin Amaewhule, to immediately commence impeachment proceedings against Governor Siminilayi Fubara.

APC Caretaker Committee (CTC) chairman in Rivers State, Chief Tony Okocha, gave the directive at a press briefing in Port Harcourt, the state capital on Tuesday, May 7, 2024.

Politics Nigeria reports that majority of the members of the State Assembly are loyalists of the immediate-past governor of the state and current FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

Recall that Wike and Fubara fell over issues regarding the political leadership of the state.

Okocha said the decision of the party followed the remarks by Fubara that the intervention of President Bola Tinubu in the political crisis rocking the state was only a political solution and not constitutional.

Okocha stated that where the Assembly fails to commence the impeachment process, the party will invoke the relevant sections of its constitution to discipline them as APC members.

APC’s impeachment call is coming barely 24 hours after Governor Fubara said the House of Assembly led by the Speaker, Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule, is “non-existent” and not recognised by law.
