PDP condemns pro-Wike lawmakers’ impeachment threat against Fubara


The Peoples Democratic Party has slammed the Rivers State House of Assembly and the All Progressives Congress for 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.

Twenty-seven lawmakers loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory had on Sunday said they might revisit Fubara’s impeachment as a last resort to enforce their responsibilities and uphold the constitution.

The Speaker of the House, Martin Amaewhule, who read the text of a communique to newsmen, accused Fubara of acting unlawfully despite signing a presidential peace agreement in the heat of the political crisis in the state.

But the Rivers PDP Publicity Secretary, Gbara, called on the lawmakers to stop disturbing the peace of the state and allow Fubara to concentrate on governance and deliver his mandate to the people.

He said the legitimacy of the 27 lawmakers remained under question following their defection from the PDP to the APC.
