The Battle Begins in Rivers State House of Assembly, Enemi George removed as Chairman, House Committee on Finance

The Battle Begins in Rivers State House of Assembly.

The Rivers State House of Assembly yesterday, Friday held a formality plenary just to do the bidding of a man against that of the Speaker.

In a nutshell, the ebullient Enemi George was removed as Chairman, House Committee on Finance and replaced with the Deputy Speaker, Edison Ehie.

The plenary held behind closed doors without media coverage.

Order 46 (5) of the Rules of House empowers the Speaker to constitute Standing Committees for the Assembly which Rt. Hon. Ikuinyi Owaji-Ibani relied on to constitute the House Committee on Finance.

But that did not go down well with Governor wike spies in the House who ran to the Governor in protest. Less than 24hrs later, an emergency sitting was called to effect the change.
