The peace deal in Rivers State appears to have completely broken down.
The opposition All Progressives Congress(APC) directed its members in the House of Assembly to immediately commence impeachment proceeding against Governor Siminialayi Fubara.

The party warned that it would invoke its rules against its lawmakers in the House if they failed to comply with the directive .

The APC has 27 members in the assembly, with the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has only five lawmakers.

Caretaker Committee Chairman of the state APC Tony Okocha told reporters yesterday that the decision followed Fubara’s outburst that the Martin Amaehwule-led Assembly had seized to exist in the eyes of the law.

Fubara had during a visit by the Bayelsa State delegation of traditional and political leaders in Port Harcourt, said ‘’those group of men who claim to be Assembly members are not existing. I want it to be on record that I accepted that peace accord to give them a floating (soft-landing).’’

He also told the delegation that everything in the truce brokered by President Bola Tinubu was political and not constitutional.
