Rivers Assembly rules against Governor Fubara, enacts Service Commission law

Mar 22, 2024

Rivers State House of Assembly has enacted the Rivers State House of Assembly (RSHA) Service Commission Law after overriding Governor Siminalayi Fubara. 

Lawmakers in the state had passed a Bill for Law to repeal the Rivers State House of Assembly Service Commission Amendment Law No. 3 of 2006; and to further amend the Principal Law of 1999 and other matters connected thereto.

Commenting on the Bill, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Martin Chike Amaewhule stated that the Bill is aimed at giving staff of the Assembly the opportunity to grow to the apogee of their career in the service like their counterparts in the other two arms of government.

He also said that the power given to the Assembly in appointing the Chairman and Members of the Assembly Service Commission by the 1999 Principal Law was taken away and given to the Executive by the 2006 amendment, hence the repeal of the 2006 Amendment Law. He said at the time, that the bill will consolidate the independence of the Legislature.

At an impromptu sitting on Friday, March 22, the Rivers State House of Assembly ruled against Governor Siminalayi Fubara to enact the Rivers State House of Assembly (RSHA) Service Commission Law.
