The embattled governor of Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, is currently meeting with members of the state executive council at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

The meeting was called following the defection of 27 House of Assembly lawmakers from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State.

The lawmakers earlier today dumped PDP during the sitting of the State House of Assembly which has been polarized after a failed attempt to impeach Fubara.

Meanwhile the Ijaw National Congress (INC) has urged President Bola Tinubu to caution the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike over plans to remove the state Rivers State Governor, Siminialayi Fubara, from office.

The INC, in a statement by its President, Prof Benjamin Okaba, wondered why Wike has been resolute in the plot to remove Fubara from office in spite of the interventions by the President and other stakeholders.

The INC leader also flayed the security agencies for their support for the Martins Amaewhule-led faction of the state lawmakers loyal to the FCT Minster.

The INC stated that the plot by Wike and some Federal Government officials to impeach Fubara is inimical to national stability.
