Rivers State Assembly Derecognize Omehia as Former Governor

A motion to derecognise Celestine Omehia as a former governor of the state has been passed by the Rivers State House of Assembly.

The motion to derecognoze Omehia as former governor was moved by the Leader of the House, representing Obio/Akpor Constituency one, Martin Amaewmule.

Amaewmule argued that the continued recognition of Omehia in that capacity would be a breach of the Supreme Court judgement, which in 2007 removed Celestine Omehia as a governor for not being the duly elected candidate in that year’s governorship election.

The Rivers House of Assembly passed the motion seeking to remove the status of “Former Governor” from Celestine Omehia who served as Governor of Rivers between May 29 to October 24, 2007, when he was removed by the famous landmark Supreme Court judgment that replaced him with his cousin Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.
