APC Demands Impeachment Of Fubara



Fresh Twist As Rivers APC Members Reject Call For Fubara's Impeachment

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Rivers state chapter on Tuesday charged the State House of Assembly to impeach Governor Siminlayi Fubara.

The State APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Tony Okocha, who made the call on behalf of the leadership of the APC tasked the 27 members of the State House of Assembly loyal to the the former governor of the state and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, to commence Fubara’s impeachment process with immediate effect.

The call for Fubara’s impeachment according to Okocha is because the Governor has refused to comply with the peace deal signed during the intervention of President Bola Tinubu in the crisis that rocked the state.

He further noted that Fubara’s refusal to implement the peace agreement he signed shows disregard and disrespect for the office of the president.

Okocha also said, “A state as crucial and all-important as Rivers State churned out a dunderhead. We cannot accept that. Our charge to the Assembly is to immediately commence an impeachment process against the Governor. And if they don’t do that there is what they call party discipline. We shall invoke the relevant section of the constitution.”

News About Nigeria reports that the Rivers State Governor has been at loggerheads with the State Assembly even after Tinubu intervened in the crisis that rocked the state last year.

This is as the Governor has refused to re-present the state 2024 budget which was approved by four lawmakers loyal to him during the crisis, adding to the fact that he has also blatantly refused to comply with the eigh point peace agreement intervention of Tinubu.
