0 111

The Executive Governor of River state, Gov. Siminialayi Fubara has on Monday inaugurated the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly with Martin Amaewhule, former House Leader and bestie of the immediate past governor, Nyesom Wike, appointed Speaker.


It will be recalled that Fubara earlier officially dissolved the 9th Assembly before inaugurating the 10th to commence the first session at the Assembly Chambers in Port Harcourt expressed confidence and trust in the lawmakers to work in harmony with other arms of government in moving Rivers forward.



Aside from Amaewhule’s much-anticipated speakership, the 10th Rivers Assembly picked Dumle Maol as Deputy Speaker and Edison Ehie was elected Majority Leader with Major Jack emerging as Chief Whip.


However, the Governor also visited to University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) and gave the contractor executing the varsity’s Convocation Arena sixty days ultimatum to deliver or face sanctions.


At the end of the Governor’s tour he made a strong remark on inspection of the project saying, “From what I’m seeing here and the contractor also assuring that in 60 days he can deliver, we will give him the benefits of doubt.


“But if in 60 days, I visit this project and don’t see it completed, it’s not going to be easy for the contractor, that’s the truth. I think they’re a bit serious compared to what we saw about two months ago.
