Rivers youths, on Monday, stormed the streets in peaceful protest to oppose the impeachment of the state governor, Similanyi Fubara.
The youths, in their numbers, were seen in a viral video marching through major roads and streets in the Rivers metropolis chanting, “If Port Harcourt don taya you, go Abuja e. Wike, If Port Harcourt don taya you, go Abuja e” (If you are tired of Port- Harcourt, move to Abuja. Wike go to Abuja).
Members of the state House of Assembly on Monday, launched an impeachment proceeding against Fubara. Meanwhile, the governor claimed that he has done nothing to warrant impeachment.
He said, “Let them come out and tell Rivers people the offence I have committed to warrant any impeachment,” the governor said while addressing his supporters at the Assembly Complex.
He added, “Let me assure the people of Rivers that I will continue to ensure that you get the dividends of democracy. At the appropriate time, I will address the press.”
