Rivers Assembly Clerk, Deputy redeployed amid political tuss

The Rivers State administration has redeployed the Clerk of the Assembly, Emeka Amadi, and his Deputy, Calistus Ojirika, following the crisis that rocked the State House of Assembly, resulting in two factional leadership.

This was announced in a circular dated November 20 and signed by the state's Civil Service Chief, George Nwaeke.

Nwaeke reassigned Amadi to the Scholarship Board and the Deputy Clerk, who is also the Head of the Legislative Department, to the Readers' Project in the document titled: Senior Staff Posting.

Georgewill Otto, an Assistant Director at the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, has been transferred to the Rivers State Small Town and Rural Water Supply Agency.

The memo stated that the postings would take effect immediately and instructed the impacted officers to complete the handover processes to the most senior officers in their respective departments.

Following the failure of impeachment proceedings against Governor Siminalayi Fubara, the Rivers State House of Assembly has been fictionalized.

Weeks ago, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT Nyesom Wike vowed not to back down in the ongoing power tussle with Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.   

Speaking after the governors elected on the Peoples Democratic Party's platform and the party's National Working Committee, NWC, met in Abuja to discuss the issue, Wike declared that the fight would continue even if heaven fell.

Wike said, “You know I will not agree. If heaven will come down, let heaven come down so that everybody will be at rest.

“Anybody who knows me knows too well: what I’ll never take is a threat. You know I will not agree. If heaven will come down, let heaven come down so that everybody will be at rest.

“Let’s do things right. He said they should bring N20 billion every month; that’s politics. But nobody said this when I was fighting. If you like, accuse me.”
