Rivers Assembly is part of my property — Fubara


Governor Siminalayi Fubara has advanced reason for his visit to the official residence of the state lawmakers, saying the quarters is “part of my property.”

The fight between Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, again came to the fore in the week.

The highlight is the emergence of two factional Speakers of the State House of Assembly: Victor Oko-Jumbo on the governor’s side alongside two others lawmakers, with the 27 lawmakers loyal to the Federal Capital Territory minister maintaining that Martin Amaewhule remains in the saddle.

The incumbent’s visit to their quarters in Amaewhule’s stance, is for malicious reason, accusing the governor of plot to demolish the structure.

Reacting to the demolition accusation through a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Nelson Chukwudi, Fubara said, “Is the Assembly quarters not part of my property? Is there anything wrong in going to check how things are going on there?

“I went there to see for myself how things are. There might be a few things I might want to do there for the good of our people.”
