Breaking:Rivers State Govt Demolishes House Of Assembly

There are reports that the Rivers State Assembly Complex is currently being demolished.

According to the report monitored on Arise News on Wednesday December 13,2023, the bulldozers were seen pulling down the structure.

This development comes amidst a tense political atmosphere in the Rivers state, with Governor Siminalayi Fubara engaged in a power struggle with his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.

The demolition reportedly began moments ago, with heavy machinery on site tearing down the building.

The reason for the demolition is unclear at this time, but it is believed to be connected to the ongoing political situation in the state.

Recall that just this morning, Rt. Hon. Barr. Ehie Edison, the factional Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, reportedly presided over a plenary session of the 10th Assembly.

Ehie Edison is a close ally of Governor Fubara.

This session follows a recent court order that declared Ehie the legitimate Speaker and barred his rival, Martins Amaewhule, from claiming leadership.

Amaewhule is believed to be backed by Nyesom Wike.

Wike and Fubara have been at loggerheads over political differences in recent times.
