A Rivers State High Court in Isiokpo, Ikwerre Local Government Area, has issued an order preventing the State House of Assembly and the Chief Justice of the State from impeaching Governor Sir Siminalayi Fubara. The governor had filed a lawsuit seeking an interim order to halt the impeachment process.
The court has ruled in favor of Governor Fubara and granted his request to stop the State Assembly and the Chief Justice from proceeding with the impeachment. This means that the governor cannot be removed from office at this time.
This court decision has significant implications for the political landscape of Rivers State. It ensures that Governor Fubara will remain in office and continue to carry out his duties as the state’s leader.
With the court’s order in place, the State Assembly and the Chief Justice must respect the decision and refrain from any further attempts to impeach Governor Fubara. The governor can now focus on governing the state without the threat of removal.
