Rivers Assembly Speaker Loyal To Gov Fubara, Hon Edison Ehie Resigns, Quits Lawmaking Duties
Rt Hon (Barr) Ehie, Ogerenye Edison- Ph.D, DSSRS, Displays Statesmanship, takes a bow as he resigns as Speaker and Member of the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly.
Affirms availability to the utmost service to Rivers State.
The crisis rocking the Rivers State House of Assembly has taken an entirely new dimension as the factional speaker loyal to Governor Siminalayi Fubara, Rt. Hon. (Barr.) Ehie Ogerenye Edison Ph.D. DSSRS, has tendered his resignation, while quitting as a member of the Assembly.
Ehie in a letter addressed to the National Chairman Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) also said he has resigned as the member representing Ahoada-East Constituency II in the 10th Assembly.
“This is to formally notify you of my voluntary resignation as Speaker and Member of the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly representing Ahoada – East Constituency II with effect from the date of this letter.
“I wish to deeply appreciate my colleagues and the people of my Constituency for the rare opportunity to serve and hope to continue to give my utmost best in service to Rivers State subsequently.
“Kindly accept the assurances of my highest esteem at all times,” the letter reads.
This development might not be unconnected to the resolution reached by the Governor and his political godfather, Nyesom Wike midwifed by president Bola Tinubu.
The president in the 8-point resolution directed that Martins Chike Amaewhule be recognised as the speaker of the house while the actions taken by Edison such as budget presentation be repeated.
