After yesterday’s fiasco in the Rivers assembly, Hon. Evans Bipi who was elected by his group of 5 lawmakers as speaker claimed that he had the backing of 15 members.
This video does not show the full House but the recycling of the people doing the talking, as well as the fact that the speaker, Hon. Amachree was allegedly impeached without any voting (someone moved a motion and another seconded it), showed clearly that the action of the 5 lawmakers was an illegality and a breach of the constitution, as neither a quorum was formed for a sitting, nor a two-thirds majority needed for an impeachment.
Watch the video for yourself:
