Rivers APC Urges Impeachment of Governor Fubara:

A Tipping Point in State Politics

by Chidera Perpetual


The political turmoil in Rivers State has reached a crescendo with the Rivers chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) calling for the immediate impeachment of Governor Siminalayi Fubara. This move, directed at the 27 APC members in the House of Assembly, underscores the deepening rift between the ruling party and the state government.

In response, the state government has vehemently criticized the APC’s demand for impeachment, setting the stage for a showdown between political factions in the state.

Adding fuel to the fire, Governor Fubara is slated to inaugurate a series of significant projects to mark his first year in office, despite the escalating tensions and calls for his impeachment.

The APC justifies its call for impeachment by citing Governor Fubara’s alleged refusal to abide by a peace agreement brokered by President Bola Tinubu between Fubara and the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike. This agreement aimed to resolve the ongoing political crisis but has seemingly failed to achieve its intended purpose.


Governor Fubara’s recent declaration that the seats of APC lawmakers are vacant further exacerbates the situation, with the APC accusing him of disregarding constitutional principles and assuming dictatorial powers.

Chief Tony Okocha, the caretaker committee chairman of the Rivers State APC, condemned the governor’s actions, likening them to the tendencies of a dictator. He emphasized the importance of upholding the separation of powers and checks and balances in governance

The governor’s dismissal of the President’s intervention as a mere political solution has only added to the contentious atmosphere, with both sides digging in their heels.

As the political drama unfolds, Rivers State finds itself at a crossroads, with the prospect of impeachment looming large over Governor Fubara’s administration. The outcome of this power struggle will not only shape the future of the state but also serve as a litmus test for the strength of its democratic institutions.
