‘Attempt to impeach Fubara will be resisted’–Rivers Govt warns

The Rivers State Government has slammed the All Progressives Congress, APC, over its call on the State House of Assembly to immediately commence an impeachment process against the governor of the state, Siminalayi Fubara.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Communications, Joseph Johnson, explained that the 27 lawmakers in the State House of Assembly lacked the moral standing to impeach the governor.

The commissioner warned the APC lawmakers, who are loyal to Federal Capital Terrority, FCT, minister, Nyesom Wike, against embarking on such a venture, stressing that any attempt to impeach the governor will be resisted by the Rivers people.

DAILY POST reported that the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the APC in Rivers State, Tony Okocha, had at a press conference in Port Harcourt called on the State Assembly to quickly commence impeachment process against the governor.

Okocha stated that the impeachment was necessary because the governor “has insulted the sensibility” of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who waded in to resolve the lingering crisis in the state.

However, the Information and Communications Commissioner, in a quick response, said Okocha lacked the morality to talk about the state government, noting that Okocha was not a legitimate member of the APC.

According to the commissioner, attempts to impeach the governor would not be an easy journey, noting that the people of the state would resist such moves with their blood.
