A group of 60 federal lawmakers said the 27 lawmakers of the Rivers State House of Assembly lacked the powers to serve Governor Siminalayi Fubara’s impeachment notice.

The 27 lawmakers, who decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are loyal to the minister of the federal capital territory, Nyesom Wike.

He added: “The President needs to intervene because it is issues like these that led to the collapse of democracy in the 70s and 80s. If they are popular, they should contest fresh elections.”
