Chief of Staff Exposes Bribery Attempt to Impeach Rivers State Governor

The Chief of Staff to Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State, Edison Ehie, has made a startling revelation, alleging that he was offered money to orchestrate the impeachment of the governor.

Speaking in the Ahoada East area of Rivers State over the weekend, Ehie disclosed that he turned down the bribe despite pressure from unnamed individuals. He stated that he refused to accept the money, which led to him being declared wanted by authorities.

The revelation comes amidst a turbulent political climate in Rivers State, with reports of attempted impeachments and unrest within the State House of Assembly. In 2023, Ehie was declared wanted by the police in connection with the invasion of the State House of Assembly, which was followed by an explosion that rocked the assembly building in October of the same year.

The Martin Amaewhule-led lawmakers had reportedly filed criminal complaints against Ehie with the Rivers State Police Command concerning the invasion and arson of the assembly chambers by unidentified perpetrators. However, Ehie’s recent disclosure sheds new light on the events surrounding the political turmoil in the state.

While Ehie did not reveal the identities of those who offered him the bribe, his refusal to accept it underscores the challenges faced by political figures in maintaining integrity amidst pressures to compromise principles. The allegation raises questions about the extent of corruption and political maneuvering within Rivers State’s government and the lengths individuals may go to in pursuit of power.
