Former Rivers Assembly Speaker Slumps While Exercising

A former speaker of the Rivers state house of assembly and currently the member representing Degema constituency in the state assembly, Tonye Harry, reportedly slumped on Wednesday while exercising.


According to report, efforts are being made to fly him abroad for medical attention even though he has reportedly stabilised.

The Rivers state Commissioner for health, Dr Sampson Parkar said, “efforts are being made to fly Tonye Harry to France”.

Governor, Rotimi Amaechi of the state, was by Harry’s bedside up until the early hours of Thursday.

Mr. Harry served as Deputy Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly during the eight years rule of former governor, Peter Odili, as well as four years under Amaechi’s administration.
