Governor Simi Fubara of Rivers State and Nyesom Wike, his predecessor, are currently at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The duo, who reportedly fell out less than six months after succession, have been in the news since the reported move of the Rivers House of Assembly to impeach the governor.

Fubara had stormed the assembly while some lawmakers loyal to Wike were said to be planning his removal.

Addressing youths who trooped to Government House, Port Harcourt, over the development, Fubara vowed to resist any impeachment attempt against him that is not justified.

The governor also dared his political opponents to tell him his offence before he would be removed.

“I know how you people are feeling, just take it easy. Great Rivers State youths. Great! When we have the youth, we have power,” Fubara said.

“But the difference with our own power is we will not misuse it. We woke up this morning to a very troubling news. We have gone to the Assembly to see for ourselves what has happened.

“On my way there, I was shot at directly by the (sic) operation, or whatever they call it. But it doesn’t matter, somebody will die one day. Whether you die inside your house or on the road. So my journey today, whatever it is that wants to happen, let it happen.

“If Siminalayi Fubara is in peace, I am not a force neither will I be…What I’m saying is that any attempt that is not justified will be resisted. Great Rivers people! That offence that I have committed, come out and tell the people of Rivers State. That’s what I want. That offence Fubara committed warrants impeaching me.”

He pledged to always defend the Rivers residents and make available dividends of democracy to them.

“But my happiness this morning is that the people of Rivers State, represented by everybody here are with us. Let me remind you people that we will continue to defend you people. We will protect you people and enjoy the dividends of democracy. I don’t want to say much. At the appropriate time, I will address the press. Thank you. God bless you,” he added.
