Reactions trail Rivers State Governor as Fubara storms Assembly

The Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, made an unexpected appearance at the State House of Assembly Complex in Port Harcourt on Thursday, sparking a flurry of mixed reactions amid the ongoing political crisis gripping the state.

Accompanied by his security entourage and aides, Governor Fubara arrived at the assembly complex, where lawmakers led by Martin Amaewhule convene, amidst tight security measures. Addressing journalists upon his arrival, Fubara asserted his presence as the duly elected governor of the state, before embarking on a brief three-minute walk around the premises.

The governor’s surprise visit comes in the wake of Hon. Victor Oko Jumbo’s inauguration as the factional Speaker of the Assembly. Jumbo, representing Bonny Constituency, assumed office following his election by two lawmakers aligned with Governor Fubara’s faction.
