He said:

”Rivers state House of Assembly elected a new Speaker Hon. Evans Bipi and the old Hon. Daniel Amachree was impeached and everything concerning the enthronement of the new speaker was concluded. As we were  about to leave the  place, the governor broke into our chambers.

Governor Rotimi Amaechi led the group. They came into the chambers and started beating everybody.

“For my case, I have to be very specific. I was about leaving; I know Chidi Lloyd, very close to me in the House. I was misled by my closeness with him. I never had any idea that he could be so brutal to use such a weapon on me.

“My colleagues rushed me to this Saint Patrick Hospital in the pool of blood and I have been here since yesterday.

“If you look at my records from the very day we were inaugurated by the governor of Rivers State, I have never insulted the governor. I hold the office of the Governor of Rivers State in very high esteem, I didn’t even go close to the governor because we respect the governor until Chidi Lloyd and the policemen came and did what they did. Only God will judge. Why will I do that? Why will I insult the governor? I can never do that. If anybody said I did such a thing the person is not being fair to me. We formed a quorum, the normal number required to impeach a Speaker.”

The ‘No Longer Beneficial’ crooner also stated that we need access to our reps and senators; their phone numbers, email addresses, etc., should be made known so that constituent members can reach them and prevail on them to truly represent their interests there.

Simi advised that though it doesn’t look like it right now, there are gains to this awakening and Nigeria will prevail.

Some Nigerians Think I Am Weak - Buhari

President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari slammed some Nigerians yesterday for taking his swift response in disbanding the Special Anti-robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police as weakness.

Stating this during his National address on Thursday evening, October 22, 2020, Buhari said sadly, the promptness with which he acted seemed to have been termed as a sign of weakness.

Read his statement below;

“As a democratic government, we listened to, and carefully evaluated the five-point demands of the protesters. And, having accepted them, we immediately scrapped SARS, and put measures in place to address the other demands of our youth.

On approving the termination of SARS, I already made it clear that it was in line with our commitment to the implementation of extensive Police reforms.

Sadly, the promptness with which we have acted seemed to have been misconstrued as a sign of weakness and twisted by some for their selfish unpatriotic interests”.
