The Rivers house of assembly has again overridden the decision of Siminalayi Fubara, governor of the state, not to assent to some bills.

In January, the lawmakers overrode the decision of the governor not to approve four bills earlier passed by the assembly.

The governor had withheld his assent stating that such amendments would create confusion and breach constituted laws.

The four bills were the Rivers State Local Government Law (Amendment) Bill; Rivers State Traditional Rulers’ Law (Amendment) Bill; Rivers State Advertisement and Use of State-owned Property Prohibition (Repeal) Bill and Rivers State House of Assembly Fund Management Bill.

However, during an impromptu plenary on Friday, the house, led by Martin Amaewhule, the speaker, ignored the governor’s assent and enacted the Rivers state house of assembly service commission bill.
