The 26 members of the Rivers State House of Assembly have withdrawn their impeachment notice against Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

This was contained in the notice of withdrawal read on the house floor on Wednesday.

They said the decision was made out of respect for President Bola Tinubu who on Monday convened a reconciliation meeting between the warring parties.

The 26 lawmakers loyal to former Governor Nyesom Wike sat at the House of Assembly Complex on Wednesday morning where the decision was read out.

The oil-rich state has been embroiled in a crisis following a rift between Wike and his predecessor, Fubara.

As part of measures to resolve the rift, President Bola Tinubu met with the warring parties in consultation with the Former governor of the state, Dr Peter Odili.

A truce was brokered at the Aso Villa in Abuja.

The rift between Wike and Fubara split lawmakers in the House with 27 of them decamping from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), a party in whose central government Wike currently serves as minister.

The feud also saw the emergence of parallel sittings, an impeachment plot against the governor, the demolition of the Assembly complex, and a gale of resignations of pro-Wike commissioners in Fubara’s cabinet.

The President and some elder statesmen had intervened in the crisis earlier in October but it degenerated into a full-blown fight.
