Gov Sim Fubara Summons Emergency Meeting, Following Defections Of 27 PDP Lawmakers Loyal To Wike

The Governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, is currently meeting with the members of the state executive council.

The meeting is holding at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The emergency meeting followed the defection of 27 members of the 32-member House of Assembly from the governing Peoples Democratic Party to the opposition All Progressives Congress.

Their defection was a fresh twist to the lingering political impasse between the governor and his political godfather, former governor Nyesom Wike, who is currently the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.

According to findings, the meeting is not unconnected with the political crisis in the state, in which the lawmakers made a failed attempt to impeach the governor a few weeks ago. The Assembly complex was eventually set ablaze by yet-to-be-identified persons.
