I did nothing wrong to warrant my impeachment as governor of Rivers, said Fubara


I did nothing wrong to warrant my impeachment as governor of Rivers, said FubaraSiminalayi Fubara, the embattled governor of Rivers, argued on Monday that the state House of Assembly had no right to impeach him because he had done nothing wrong.

Fubara made this statement despite rumors that the disagreement between him and Nyesom Wike, his predecessor and current Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister, had intensified.

According to reports, Wike's domineering behavior and influence over affairs in the state he gave up power from on May 29—despite becoming the Minister for the Federal Capital Territory—are the cause of the purported rift between the two men.

On Monday, Fubara declared that he had done nothing wrong for the Rivers State House of Assembly to impeach him.

Speaking to his fans at the Assembly Complex, the governor declared, "Let them come out and tell Rivers people the offence I have committed to warrant any impeachment."

"Let me reassure the residents of Rivers that I will keep working to make sure you reap the benefits of democracy." "I will speak to the media at the appropriate time," he declared.

Plots to remove Fubara from office were more intense on Monday following Edison Ehie's dismissal as House of Assembly leader.

Fubara had earlier appointed 14 commissioners and given them respective portfolios.

Fubara appointed five more commissioners last week after receiving harsh criticism from opposition political groups; the House of Assembly had vetted them beforehand.
