Martin Amaewhule, the factional Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, asserts his determination to reclaim the state from Governor Sim Fubara. He warns of potential attacks on the Assembly Quarters today but emphasizes that the lawmakers will stand firm, citing their mandate from the people of Rivers. 

Their defection from the People Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) is attributed to the PDP crisis, and Amaewhule vows to continue legislative activities despite contrary opinions. 

Speaking at an APC event, he justifies the switch, mentioning the leadership style of President Bola Tinubu and claims adherence to constitutional processes for the defection. 

Amaewhule expresses regret over the lack of condemnation from PDP regarding the burning and demolition of the Assembly Complex, asserting the invalidity of actions taken by a purported quorum below the required 11 members.
