The Governor of River State, Siminalayi Fubara has reacted to the raging move by the members of the State House of Assembly to impeach him.

Fubara made the reaction on Monday while addressing his supporters at the Assembly Complex, shortly after the House members, led by their Speaker, Martin Amaewhule, convened to begin the impeachment process against him.

The Governor declared that he had done nothing to warrant impeachment by the state House of Assembly.

“Let them come out and tell Rivers people the offense I have committed to warrant any impeachment,” the governor said while addressing his supporters at the Assembly Complex.

He added, “Let me assure the people of Rivers that I will continue to ensure that you get the dividends of democracy. At the appropriate time, I will address the press.”

The governor, who assured the people of the state of getting the dividends of democracy, said he would speak on the matter at the appropriate time.

Recall that there were gunshots and firing of teargas within the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex on Monday as some lawmakers sat to begin an impeachment process on Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

The lawmakers also suspended the leader of the House, Edison Ehie, and some of their colleagues believed to be loyal to the governor.

The development occurred hours after a fire broke out at the Assembly Complex on Sunday night.
