Former federal lawmaker Shehu Sani has noted that the fiasco going on in Rivers State between the camp of ex-Governor Nyesom Wike and his protege, Governor Sim Fubara, is being monitored by other former governors who made themselves godfathers.
Recall, that arsonists torched the hallowed chambers of the Rivers State House of Assembly on Sunday night, a development the opposition party has described as the desecration of the legislature.
The rift among members of the Rivers State House of Assembly on Sunday led to some of them commencing impeachment proceedings against Governor Fubara.
Edison Ehie, Leader of the House, reportedly rejected the bid to impeach the governor and was removed as the majority leader.
However, Edison has now been elected Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, as Governor Fubara fought vehemently to keep his authority over matters of state.
Reacting, Sani wrote on X: “Other governors and godfathers are watching over how the confrontation in Rivers will end; they are also learning lessons from the war strategies.”
