The political crisis in Rivers had worsened on Wednesday when lawmakers loyal to Fubara elected  Oko-Jumbo representing Bonny State as the Speaker the State Assembly.

Oko-Jumbo  upon his election declared all actions taken by the 27-man faction loyal to former Governor and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory,  Nyesom Wike, null and void. The pro-Wike faction is led by Martin.
