In what appears like a victory for the camp of Nyesom Wike, the Rivers state House of Assembly has passed an important bill into law.

The state’s House of Assembly on Monday, April 22, passed the local government Amendment Bill into law without the assent of Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

The Assembly on Monday defied the state High Court’s order directing the status quo on the issue of elongating the tenure of elected local government officials, which formed part of the amendment.

The House was said to have also screened and confirmed members of the chairman and other members of the Assembly Service Commission in the spirit of the new law, The Nation reports.
