PDP Accuses Rivers Assembly, APC Of Stampeding Fubara

The Peoples Democratic Party has slammed the Rivers State House of Assembly and the All Progressives Congress for allegedly attempting to stampede Governor Siminalayi Fubara to act outside the law.

The PDP described the renewed threat by the lawmakers to impeach Fubara as an embarrassment and a public nuisance to the state.

The state PDP Publicity Secretary, Sydney Gbara, said this in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Monday.

Recall that the 27 lawmakers said to be loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, had on Sunday said they may revisit Fubara’s impeachment as a last resort to enforce their responsibilities and uphold the constitution.

Speaker of the House, Martin Amaewhule, who read a text of a communique to newsmen, accused Fubara of acting unlawfully despite signing the presidential peace agreement in the political crisis in the state, saying the state was running without an approved budget.

But Gbara called on the lawmakers, who he said defected from the PDP to the APC without consulting their constituents, to stop disturbing the peace of the state and allow Fubara to concentrate on governance and deliver his mandate to the people.

The state PDP spokesman reminded the Amaewhule-led lawmakers not to forget that the issue of their legitimacy is before the court.
