BREAKING: Pro-Wike Lawmakers Issue Fresh Ultimatum to Fubara, Demand Resubmission of 2024 Budget

The Rivers State House of Assembly, led by Martin Amaewhule, has given the state Governor, Siminalayi Fubara a 7-day deadline to resubmit the 2024 budget.

This order was issued during the first session of the pro-Wike House on Monday after a break of several months.

Meanwhile, a parallel session is being held by the House faction led by Victor Oko-Jumbo.

Fubara had previously presented the budget to the other House loyal to him, with his current Chief of Staff, Edison Ehie, presiding as Speaker.

Ehie and the pro-Fubara lawmakers had passed the Rivers State budget estimates months ago, which the governor quickly signed into law.
