Rivers State Assembly members loyal to Minister of FCT Nyesom Wike are allegedly breaching the Peace Accord mediated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the political issue in the state, according to the Coalition of Opposition Lawmakers in the 10th National Assembly.

In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Hon. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere (PDP, Imo State), the coalition expressed its disapproval of the 27 members of the Rivers House of Assembly, led by Martin Amaewhule, who recently accused Governor Fubara of many violations, including impeachable offenses.

According to the coalition, the state assembly members have been attempting to undermine the Fubara government and violate the Presidential Peace Accord by unlawfully changing and removing laws that do nothing to help the state’s economy recover from its ongoing problems ever since they defected to the APC.

Even though they are still not legally considered lawmakers, the Coalition claims that the so-called state lawmakers have changed multiple laws.

As the opposition legislators put it, “Amaewhule and his cohorts have been entangled in unconstitutionality, in their selfish bid to destablize the administration of Governor Siminalayi Fubara and satisfy the whims and caprices of one man” for months.

“In January, the legislature disregarded the governor’s veto of four laws that had previously been approved by the assembly. Such changes would cause chaos and violate established laws, so the governor was correct to withhold his permission. There were four laws that needed to be addressed in this state: the Local Government Law (Amendment) Bill, the Traditional Rulers’ Law (Amendment) Bill, the Prohibition of Advertisement and Use of State-owned Property (Repeal) Bill, and the House of Assembly Fund Management Bill.
