Twenty-seven lawmakers in the Rivers State House of Assembly, loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, have commenced operations in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
The lawmakers who recently dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) are considering withdrawing the impeachment notice against the state Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.
In recent weeks, Rivers State has been facing a political crisis between former state governor Wike and successor Fubara.
The feud also saw the rise of parallel sessions, an impeachment plot against the governor, the demolition of the parliament complex and a storm of resignations of pro-Wike commissioners in Fubara's cabinet.
President Bola Tinubu, in a bid to end the rift between Wike and Fubara, met with stakeholders in consultation with the former governor of the state, Peter Odili.
At the end of the meeting, which lasted three hours, a truce was concluded at the Aso Villa in Abuja.
After the meeting at the Aso Villa, the warring parties agreed that all cases filed by Fubara and his team in court would be immediately withdrawn.
