“Ayambem Remains C’River’s Speaker Of 10th Assembly” – Says CPS

Following the news of the Cross River State House of Assembly’s speaker impeachment Rt Hon. Elvert Ayambem, the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker Mr Matthew Okache has debunked the news describing it as false report.

Okache in a press release post on WhatsApp on Wednesday May 22, 2024 , stated that Rt Hon. Elvert Ayambem remains the Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly without a doubt, that is the current position.

Also, in the release he said that the Cross River State House of Assembly has been alerted to false news reports that the Cross River State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt Hon. Elvert Ayambem, has been impeached.

Therefore, to be clear, he reiterated that the Speaker of the Cross River State House of Assembly without a doubt is the Rt Hon. Elvert Ayambem.

Again, he explained what happened earlier on Wednesday during the plenary.

He Alleged that Hon. Effiong Akarika, a member representing Calabar South 1, disrupted the session by inviting hoodlums to enter the chamber.

He described what happened as ridiculous charade with no constitutional basis.

The Chief Press Secretary further said that the House of Assembly was not aware of any impeachment notices being served to anyone before the frivolous act as witnessed at the chambers.

According to him, the alleged impeachment and replacement are speculative.

Meanwhile, he has announced that the general public is urged to disregard fake news and dismiss any notion of a crisis.

Therefore, the release in part read: “The status quo is that Rt Hon Elvert Ayambem is the Speaker of the House of Assembly.”

“Mr. Speaker, Rt. Hon. Elvert Ayambem remains unconcerned and determined to elevate the Cross River State House of Assembly and support the Executive arm of government, led by His Excellency, Sen. Prince Bassey Edet Otu, in achieving the people’s first mantra.”

“Also note, that the removal of the speaker and election is not done anywhere but within prescient of the Assembly Complex.”
