The crisis, however, in the last few days has seen the state government demolished the state House of Assembly complex, while 27 members of the assembly loyal to Wike defected to the APC.

Addressing a press conference at the APC national secretariat on Thursday in Abuja , Mr Okacha said, “I wasn’t part of it, but whatever that was it, has broken down, and it has been broken irreconcilably.”

He also said the four members of the state House of Assembly led by the factional Speaker, Edison Ehie, who sat and passed the budget presented to them by Governor Fubara for the 2024 fiscal year were dwelling on illegality, saying their action would not stand.
