Rt Hon Edison Ehie, Speaker of the faction of the Rivers State House of Assembly loyal to Governor Sim Fubara, has resigned, including as member representing Ahoada East in the Assembly.

His notice of resignation was contained in a letter dated 29th December 2023 and addressed to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Professor Mahmood Yakubu.

“This is to formally notify you of my voluntary resignation as Speaker and Member of the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly representing Ahoada East Constituency II with effect from the date of this letter.

“I wish to appreciate my colleagues and the people of my constituency for the rare opportunity to serve and hope to continue to give my utmost best in service to Rivers State subsequently,” the letter reads.

The lawmaker did not give any reason for his resignation but political analysts believe it may not be unconnected with the recent peace deal brokered between Fubara and his estranged political godfather, FCT Minister Nyesome Wike, by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
