Nigeria: Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Government, Edison Ehie, has made shocking allegations

By Zuleihat Owuiye, Mamos Nigeria

In recent news, the Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Government, Edison Ehie, has made shocking allegations of being offered money to impeach Governor Siminalayi Fubara. During a rally in the Ahoada East area of the state, Ehie revealed the purported plot to impeach the governor, which garnered applause from the gathered crowd. However, he did not disclose the identities of those who made the offer.

Ehie, who was the former factional speaker of the State House of Assembly, further explained that he had refused the money that was hidden before him. As a consequence of his refusal, he claimed that a conspiracy was formed against him, resulting in him being declared wanted. A viral video clip from the rally captures Ehie making these revelations.

This revelation adds to the protracted crisis in the state, which stems from the conflict between Governor Fubara and his predecessor and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike. The state has been witnessing a series of events, including the invasion of the State House of Assembly and an explosion in the assembly building, allegedly involving individuals with close ties to the governor.

It is worth noting that Ehie himself was declared wanted by the police last year in connection with the invasion of the State House of Assembly. The Martin Amaewhule-led lawmakers had reportedly filed complaints against Ehie with the Rivers State Police Command regarding the invasion and arson of the Rivers State House of Assembly chambers.

These developments continue to fuel the ongoing crisis in Rivers State and highlight the deep-rooted conflicts within the political landscape. As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how these allegations and the subsequent investigations will impact the political dynamics in the state.
