Rivers crisis can lead to revolution –Deputy Speaker

The Deputy Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Kwanee Leyii, in this interview with CHUKWUDI AKASIKE, commends the National Assembly for intervening in the crisis rocking the state
HOW would you describe the intervention of the National Assembly in the crisis rocking the Rivers State House of Assembly?
It is constitutionally permissible and they are acting in line with the 1999 Constitution as amended. It is a welcome development. If you recall, at various fora, I have always bared my mind that the current Assembly under the leadership of Mr. Otelemaba Amachree has been very mindful that we do not play into the game plan of certain anti-democratic elements, who are, at all cost, trying to frustrate the present democratic governance. With the intervention of the National Assembly, I think it is a welcome development. It will permit time for this crisis to die down.

Governor Aregbesola Gave His Female Deputy A Dirty Slap

Gist going round is that the Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola is just a man with hot temper and he lost it recently and gave his deputy, a woman older than him, a dirty slap during an argument...
But Gov Aregbesola has denied slapping Mrs. Grace Tomori, his deputy, stressing that the rumor was aimed at causing disaffection between them. Can there be smoke without fire. What is the cause of this smoke?

Reacting to the allegation, the governor said: “I have not beaten anybody within my life. In fact, I don't beat my children, let alone beating some other person. Way more, the Deputy Governor is older than me, so just how do I beat an aged person.”

Imo Deputy Governor Impeached

Barely hours after the High Court dismissed the suit by the Deputy Governor of Imo State, Mr. Jude Agbaso, asking it to stop his impeachment by the state Assembly, the embattled deputy governor has been removed from office.

Twenty-five out of the 26 members of the Imo State House of Assembly approved the impeachment.

His impeachment is coming after a prolonged battle over the allegation that he demanded the sum of N417 million from a contractor in the state. Mr. Agbaso has consistently denied the allegation.

Mr. Agbaso had earlier approached the court praying it to restrain the state lawmakers from proceeding with the impeachment process which began three weeks ago.

He also prayed the court to restrain the Nigerian Police from harassing him or acting upon the recommendations of the House of Assembly against him.
