Rivers crisis: ‘Ehie resigned for peace’ – Fubara speaks amid Wike rift

 


Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State has explained why Edison Ehie resigned as Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

 

Fubara explained that Ehie’s resignation was aimed at paving the way for peace in the state.

 

He disclosed this while addressing dignitaries, including the former governor of the state, Peter Odili, and his wife, Mary, in Port Harcourt.

 

According to Fubara: “Therefore, whatever it will take, as seen in our decisions yesterday, most of you were worried why the speaker would resign. It is to tell you what we can do for peace.

 

“It is not about what we want to gain. It is not about the power we want to exercise. But at the end of the day, ask what we are leaving for our people.”

 

Ehie, who is loyal to Fubara, resigned as lawmaker and Speaker of the state’s assembly amid the crisis between the governor and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

 

Ehie’s resignation letter was dated December 29, 2023, and addressed to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
