Impeachment: Rivers Assembly Removes Majority Leader, Three Others

by Victor Ndubuisi

Because of his suspected involvement in the Sunday night arson attack on the assembly, the majority leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon. Edison Ehie, was dismissed.

Strongly backing Governor Similanayi Fubara, Ehie was reported to have thwarted the first attempt to bring the governor up for impeachment.

Speaker Martins Amaehwule announced the majority leader’s expulsion during a sitting on Monday morning. He cited Ehie’s nonattendance at the assembly sitting and his suspected involvement in the assembly’s arson attack as the reasons for his removal.

According to Speaker Amaehwule, roughly 17 House members were in favour of the house leader’s dismissal.


Adolphus Timothy from Opobo Nkoro, Goodboy Sokari from Ahoada West, and Victor Okoh from Bonny were the other three lawmakers who were suspended.

But on Monday morning, as tear gas was shot outside the Assembly Complex, Governor Siminalayi Fubara rushed the building. House members fled for their lives.

Additionally, as of the time this report was filed, there was still a demonstration taking place outside the Complex.
