In a dramatic turn of events, the Rivers State House of Assembly has withdrawn its impeachment notice against Governor Siminalayi Fubara. The lawmakers, bowing to pressure from President Bola Tinubu, cited respect for the President’s recent peace deal between Fubara and his predecessor, Nyesom Wike, as the reason for their decision.

This sudden retreat follows a morning sitting by 26 pro-Wike lawmakers at the Assembly Complex, which many perceived as a show of force. However, with Tinubu’s intervention and the subsequent withdrawal of the impeachment notice, the political chessboard in Rivers has been drastically reshuffled.

Governor Fubara, facing imminent removal just days ago, now enjoys the backing of the House and the tacit approval of the President. This marks a significant victory for Fubara and consolidates his hold on power after months of political squabbling.

The future of the Wike-Fubara rivalry remains uncertain. While the immediate threat of impeachment has been lifted, the underlying tensions between the two factions linger. Whether the President’s peace deal can forge lasting reconciliation or simply serve as a temporary truce remains to be seen.

One thing is clear: the political landscape in Rivers has been transformed. Fubara has emerged stronger, while Wike’s influence has waned. As the dust settles, all eyes will be on how this new dynamic plays out and shapes the future of the state.
