BREAKING: Federal High Court Declares Rivers N800bn 2024 Budget Illegal

In a significant legal development, the Federal High Court in Abuja has declared the N800bn 2024 budget signed into law by Rivers State Governor Simi Fubara as illegal. The court ruled that the budget, initially presented to a faction of the state House of Assembly comprising four lawmakers, is null and void.

The presiding judge, James Omotosho, explicitly stated that all actions taken by the four lawmakers in passing the budget are deemed invalid. The court has additionally recognized Martin Amaewhule as the legitimate speaker of the state assembly.

This court decision is a pivotal moment in the ongoing factionalization of the Rivers Assembly, triggered by a move from 27 lawmakers loyal to ex-governor Nyesom Wike to impeach Governor Fubara. The ruling carries substantial implications for the governance and financial plans of Rivers State.
