A new factional Speaker, Victor Jumbo, has emerged in the Rivers State House of Assembly. Jumbo is among four lawmakers loyal to State Governor Siminalayi Fubara amidst the political crisis.

The former factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, leader of the pro-Fubara lawmakers, resigned from the Assembly after President Bola Tinubu intervened to reconcile the feud between Fubara and his estranged political godfather, Nyesom Wike, now Minister of the Federal Capital Territory. Ehie was subsequently appointed as the Chief of Staff, Rivers State Government House, by Fubara. Jumbo represents Bonny Constituency in the state House of Assembly.

A source in the Government House, Port Harcourt, familiar with the situation, confirmed the development.

He stated, “Yes, I can confirm to you that Hon Victor Oko Jumbo has just emerged as the new Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly.

“His colleagues elected him during their sitting in Port Harcourt this afternoon. That is all I can say for now.”
