The of Assembly has vetoed Governor over the Rivers State (RSHA) Service Commission Law.

The lawmakers, who are loyal to the immediate-past governor of the State and Minister of the (FCT), Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, took the decision on Friday after convening an impromptu sitting.

The development is the second after the House last January override Governor Fubara over four Bills it passed into law following the governor's refusal to assent to them.

The laws include; the Rivers Local Amendment Law, the Rivers State Traditional Rulers Amendment Law, Rivers State Advertisement and Use of State Owned Property Prohibition Law and the Rivers State Funds Management and Financial Autonomy Law.

During the sitting, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Martins Amaewhule, read four letters addressed to him by the governor wherein he declined his assent to the four new Bills which were earlier been sent to him for assent.

The House had relied on Section 100, Subsection 5, to say that the assent of the governor was not required for the passage into law of the said bills.

The section states that “where the Governor withholds assent and the bill is again passed by two-thirds majority, the bill shall become a law and the assent of the Governor shall not be required.”
