Some members of the Rivers State House of Assembly loyal to the factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, have passed a vote of confidence on Governor Siminalayi Fubara.
The lawmakers, who held a separate sitting from other Assembly members in the camp of the Speaker of the House, Martins Amaewhule, commended the governor for his developmental strides and security initiatives in the state.
The lawmakers in a statement made available to journalists, noted that “it takes a man of great vision and peace to steer the ship of development for the benefit of the people of the state”.
The pro-Fubara lawmakers resolved to “continuously give the governor the required support to accomplish his consolidation and continuity agenda to benefit the state”.
They also condemned the attack on Ehie’s residence and the burning of the chamber of the Rivers State House of Assembly.
While appealing to the governor to commence the rehabilitation work on the Assembly complex as soon as possible, they called on the Inspector General of Police, and other security agencies in the state to investigate the recent attacks in the state and bring the culprits to book.
