I was offered money to impeach Fubara but I rejected it – Former Rivers state speaker Edison Ehie

The Chief of Staff to Rivers State Government, Edison Ehie, has alleged that he was offered money to impeach Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

Addressing a rally in Ahoada East area of the state, the former factional speaker of the State House of Assembly disclosed the purported plot to impeach the governor, eliciting applause from the gathered crowd.

“They invited me, your son, to impeach the governor and I told them clearly, I was not interested.

He, however, did not disclose the identities of those who offered him money.

“They gave me all the money that was hidden before, which I rejected. And because I refused, they conspired and declared me wanted,” Ehie said.

Last year, Ehie was declared wanted by the police in connection with the invasion of the State House of Assembly after an explosion rattled the state assembly building in October 2023 amidst reports of lawmakers attempting to impeach Fubara.
