Political Crisis: Lawmakers relocate to Rivers govt house

The 10th Rivers State House of Assembly has relocated its sittings to a new complex within the Government House, Port Harcourt

The lawmakers led by Rt. Hon. Edison Ehie, while the demolition was ongoing, were seen making their way into the Rivers State Government House.

This was following the demolition work on the Assembly building on Moscow Road, Port Harcourt

It would be recalled that a State High Court holden in Port Harcourt, Tuesday, had in an order allowed Edison to remain the Speaker of the Assembly until the matter before this court is dispensed.

It was gathered that the house, on the directive of the state governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, relocated its sittings to a new place provided by the governor.

The lawmakers in its first sitting elected Hon. Adolphus T. Orubienimigha as the new majority leader of the assembly.

As of the time of this report, the state House of Assembly, led by the legally recognized speaker and government of Rivers State, Rt. Hon. Barr Ehie Edison, and other members, are already sitting and debating bills in the interest of Rivers people.
