I have not committed any impeachable offense – Fubara

Rumors of bad blood between Fubara and his predecessor Nyesom Wike have been brewing for some time. 

Rivers State Governor Siminalai Fuarqa on Monday said he has committed no crime worthy of impeachment by the Rivers State House of Assembly.

 "Let them come out and tell the people of Rivers what crimes I have committed to justify my impeachment," the governor told his supporters at the Capital.

 The governor, who assured the people of the state that they would enjoy the benefits of democracy, said he would comment on the matter in due course. 

“Let me assure the people of Rivers that they will continue to enjoy the benefits of democracy.

 "I will address the press in due course," he said. our correspondent reports that the Rivers House of Assembly is facing a new crisis amid rumors of an impending impeachment trial against Fubara after the House of Assembly expelled leader Edison Ehie on Monday. Members of the House of Assembly, led by Speaker Martin Ameifure, served a notice of impeachment on Mr Fubara before fleeing to safety as tear gas was fired outside the complex. 

 Addressing supporters protesting development outside the Assembly complex, the governor said he had done nothing to warrant impeachment by the Legislature. 

The development comes hours after a fire broke out at the assembly hall on Sunday evening.
