A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Kayode Ajulo, has filed a suit seeking to stop Rivers State Governor Siminalaye Fubara of Rivers State from re-presenting the 2024 budget to the state House of Assembly.
The lawyer asked the court to stop such a move pending the hearing and determination of a suit filed before the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Ajulo in the suit with number No.: FHC/ABJ/CS/1718/2023 also called on the court to restrain the state House Assembly and the Speaker of the House from screening and confirming the commissioners appointed by Governor Similaiya Fubara.
Ajulo particularly urged the court to take cognizance of motion on notice attached with the suit and stop the holding of plenary sessions by the 27 members of the State House of Assembly out of the 32 members.
Recall that Governor Fubara and his immediate predecessor, Nyesom Wike, had agreed to end the political crisis rocking the state.
The agreement was reached after President Tinubu and other stakeholders met with the two warring factions.
Part of the agreement was that Fubara would have to represent the 2024 budget, which he had already signed into law, to the returning members of the State House Assembly, whose seats were declared vacant after they decamped to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
