In a bid to quell mounting speculation and political unrest, Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State unequivocally denied any wrongdoing that could warrant his impeachment by the Rivers State House of Assembly.
The governor made these statements on Monday while addressing a crowd of his supporters gathered at the Assembly Complex in Port Harcourt.
Governor Fubara, facing growing rumors of impeachment passionately defended his position, assuring the people of Rivers State that he would continue to deliver the promised dividends of democracy.
“Let them come out and tell Rivers people the offense I have committed to warrant any impeachment,” Governor Fubara boldly declared before his supporters. “Let me assure the people of Rivers that I will continue to ensure that you get the dividends of democracy. At the appropriate time, I will address the press.”
