The embattled Governor of Rivers State, Nigeria, Siminalayi Fubara, has denied any wrongdoing after the state House of Assembly began an impeachment process against him on Monday.
Fubara told supporters that he had “done nothing to warrant impeachment” and that he was “confident” that he would be cleared of all charges.
The governor’s impeachment comes after a series of allegations of corruption and mismanagement were made against him. However, Fubara has dismissed these allegations as “politically motivated”.
The impeachment process has been met with mixed reactions from the public. Some people have supported the move, saying that Fubara should be held accountable for his actions. Others have defended the governor, saying that he is being targeted by his political opponents.
The outcome of the impeachment process is still uncertain. However, it is clear that the situation in Rivers State is tense and that the political future of Governor Fubara is hanging in the balance.
