Tension brewed on Monday following the attempted impeachment of the governor by the Martins Amaehwule led State House of Assembly.

The governor said he considered it necessary to issue the press statement on the developments of the past few days in our dear state.

He said, “Late on Sunday night, 29th October, 2023, I was inundated with reports that the hallowed chamber of the Rivers State House of Assembly had been gutted by fire. The blaze was successfully put out by the fire service, after which security agencies took control of the situation.

“My visit to the Assembly complex on Monday, 30th October 2023 was to assess the level of damage and undertake remedial measures to protect lives and property within the Assembly complex. I charged the security agencies to thoroughly investigate the incident and report to me.

“Shortly after, I got reports that the state house of assembly had broken into two factions: one claiming to have impeached and suspended the house leader and 3 others preparatory to initiating an impeachment action against me, and the other rival faction impeaching the speaker and deputy speaker, thus sparking off some form of political crisis”

“I wish to thank the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, for his fatherly intervention which opened a series of communication channels to facilitate the timely resolution of the festering crises. I wish to also thank our Elders who are currently intervening in the matter.”

He pointed out that his actions was aimed at restoring peace and stability in the state, saying that, “as a man of peace and as governor, the advancement of our state is my primary concern.”

He noted that no sacrifice was too much for him to make to achieve the objective.
