Rivers Crisis: Wike alleges Fubara burnt down state Assembly building


Former Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has accused Governor Sim Fubara of burning down the State’s House of Assembly building.


Recall that there was an arson attack on the hallowed chambers of the state assembly weeks ago and the opposition party described the same as the desecration of the legislature.


The rift among members of the Rivers State House of Assembly had led to some lawmakers commencing impeachment proceedings against Governor Fubara.


Edison Ehie, Leader of the State House of Assembly had reportedly rejected the bid to impeach the Governor, having not committed any impeachable offence and was removed as the majority Leader.


However, Edison has now been elected the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly as Governor Fubara fought vehemently to keep his authority over matters of the state.


“When they were about impeaching you, did you call me to say ‘Sir, they want to impeach me’?


“Is that why you sent people to go and burn down the hallowed chamber? Is the impeachment for only one day?


“Is the impeachment process a one-day affair? Then you raised ethnic politics. We’ve never had it like this before…”
