As reported by The Punch on Monday, May 13, Ehie did not disclose the identities of those who offered him money.

Ehie made this assertion while addressing a gathered crowd at a rally held in Ahoada East area of the state.

Speaking on the purported plot to impeach the governor, the former factional speaker of the State House of Assembly said:

“They invited me, your son, to impeach the governor and I told them clearly, I was not interested.

“They gave me all the money that was hidden before, which I rejected. And because I refused, they conspired and declared me wanted,” Ehie said in a viral video clip from the rally.

Impeachment: Wike linked to Fubara’s recent ordeal

The impeachment plot against Fubara thickens in recent days as the immediate past governor of Rivers state and current minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, unveiled his strategy amid his feud with his successor, Governor Fubara.

This came after the APC in Rivers state told lawmakers loyal to Wike to initiate impeachment proceedings against Fubara.

This move so far has stirred reactions from Wike and Fubara’s loyalists and further worsened their rift.

Wike who has been fighting Fubara for control of the state’s political structure since 2023, claimed he made a mistake by “supporting” Sim Fubara’s emergence as governor, emphasising that he is out to correct his “mistake.

As plot to remove Fubara gains momentum in Rivers Assembly, Wike hinted that he is out to provoke Fubara’s camp into wrong action.

In a related development, Prince Uche Secondus, a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said Wike is the brain behind Governor Fubura’s political troubles.

The PDP leader, who spoke in Abuja on Saturday, May 11, said Fubura was being hounded by his political opponents for daring to prevent the looting of the state.

According to Secondus, the political crisis in Rivers state was orchestrated by those who demand unfettered access to the finances of the state, a demand the governor has refused to accept.
