The House of Representatives has clarified its stance on not assuming the functions of the embroiled Rivers State, choosing to navigate through the complex dynamics of the power struggle.

Key events in the crisis include Governor Fubara accusing Wike of embezzling N9 billion from Rivers State, vowing to expose the alleged corruption. In response, Wike declared his readiness for any confrontation, setting the stage for a high-stakes political showdown.
