Rivers state Governor Siminalayi Fubara has sworn in nine re-nominated commissioners in the state, urging them to put the interest of the state above their personal sentiments and ambitions.


Congratulating the re-sworn commissioners, Fubara told them he had nothing against them and asked them to engage in activities that would make them to be positively remembered by posterity.


The swearing in follows President Tinubu’s peace pact to restore normalcy in the state after the minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike and his successor got embroiled in power tussle.


Meanwhile, the State House of Assembly has voted to override Governor Siminalayi Fubara and pass four new bills into law, after the governor wrote the house, declining ascent to the bills.


The Speaker of the House, Martin Amaewhule invoked Section 100 subsection 5 which allows the house to pass a bill by two thirds majority, accusing the governor of not planning to conduct local government elections in the state.


The 4 Laws passed are the Local Government Amendment Law, State Traditional Rulers Amendment Law, State Advertisement and Use of State-Owned Property Prohibition repeal law and the State Funds Management and Financial Autonomy Law.
