Fubara Resists Impeachment Attempt

Date:

In a dramatic turn of events, the Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Fubara, is facing a fierce impeachment attempt led by members of the State House of Assembly. The controversy has escalated with Fubara publicly accusing his predecessor, Mr. Nyesom Wike, who is currently serving as the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), of orchestrating the impeachment proceedings.

The impeachment attempt, which began earlier this week, has caused political turmoil in the oil-rich state. It is widely believed to be a result of mounting political tensions between Governor Fubara and the influential ex-governor Wike. Observers say the rift between the two politicians has been festering for some time, primarily due to ideological and political differences.

The Rivers State House of Assembly was set ablaze last night by a group of unidentified arsonists. The arson attack unfolded just hours after the impeachment moves against the governor commenced.

The blaze, which engulfed the legislative building in a matter of minutes, caused extensive damage to the Assembly chambers and surrounding offices. Reports indicate that the fire was brought under control by firefighters, but not before it had caused substantial destruction.
