 Rivers State Assembly Gives Fubara Seven-day To Resubmit 2024 Budget

The Rivers State House of Assembly, led by factional Speaker Martin Amaewhule, has given Governor Siminalayi Fubara of the State 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 hiatus 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 other pro-Fubara lawmakers passed the budget estimates, which the governor then signed into law.
