Releated Post


Who will blink first in the renewed fight between Governor Siminalayi Fubara and the Rivers State House of Assembly, led by Martin Amaewhule.

The Amaewhule led assembly on Monday July 8 2024 issued the governor a 7-day ultimatum to resubmit the 2024 budget.

This order was issued during the first session of the pro-Wike House on Monday after a hiatus of several months.

Meanwhile, a parallel session is being held by the House faction led by Victor Oko-Jumbo.

Fubara had previously presented the budget to the other House loyal to him, with his current Chief of Staff, Edison Ehie, presiding as Speaker.

Ehie and the pro-Fubara lawmakers passed the budget estimates, which the governor then signed into law, stating it aims to promote economic development, inclusive growth, and address socio-economic inequality in the state.
