Scores of people on Friday stormed the Government House, Port Harcourt, and Rivers State, protesting against the presidential intervention in the political crisis rocking the state.
According to The PUNCH, the protest was also in solidarity with the state governor, Siminilayi Fubara.
The protesters include students, youths, civil society organisations, labor unions, and members of the Hausa community in the state.
They occupied the Government House, along Azikiwe Road, Port Harcourt, as early as 7 am.
It would be recalled that over the past few weeks, there has been tension in Rivers over the feud between Siminalayi Fubara, governor of Rivers, and Nyesom Wike, his predecessor.
In the wake of the crisis, the Rivers house of assembly commenced impeachment proceedings against Fubara.
The governor’s loyalists kicked against the impeachment moves.
Thereafter, 27 lawmakers defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
Subsequently, Edison Ehie, factional speaker of the Rivers assembly, declared the seats of the lawmakers who defected vacant.
However, following Tinubu’s intervention on Monday, Fubara and Wike agreed to end the feud between them.
According to the resolutions reached at the end of the meeting with Tinubu, all parties agreed that all matters instituted in courts should “immediately” be withdrawn.
In the eight-point resolution signed by Fubara, Wike, and other Rivers stakeholders, it was agreed that all impeachment proceedings against the governor should be dropped “immediately”.
