Factional Speaker loyal to Governor Fubara in Rivers state resigns from office

The ongoing crisis rocking the Rivers State House of Assembly took a new twist on Sunday, December 31, 2023, as the factional speaker of the State House of Assembly who is loyal to Governor Siminalayi Fubara, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Ehie Ogerenye tendered his resignation, while quitting as a member of the Assembly.

 

Ehie in a letter addressed to the National Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, also stated that he has resigned as the member representing Ahoada-East Constituency II in the 10th Assembly.

 

 

“This is to formally notify you of my voluntary resignation as Speaker and Member of the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly representing Ahoada – East Constituency II with effect from the date of this letter. I wish to deeply appreciate my colleagues and the people of my Constituency for the rare opportunity to serve and hope to continue to give my utmost best in service to Rivers State subsequently. Kindly accept the assurances of my highest esteem at all times,” the letter reads.

 

 

The development comes barely two weeks after President Bola Tinubu mediated between the Rivers Governor and his political godfather, Nyesom Wike, the FCT minister.

 

The President Tinubu in the 8-point resolution reached after his intervention directed that Martins Chike Amaewhule be recognized as the speaker of the house while the actions taken by Edison such as budget presentation be repeated.
