Members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, who recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), have unequivocally dismissed the possibility of returning to their former party.
Led by Martins Amaewhule, the lawmakers, aligned with Federal Capital Territory Minister Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, withdrew the impeachment notice served on Governor Siminalayi Fubara during a peace meeting convened by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to address the ongoing feud between Wike and Fubara.
Speaking to reporters in Port Harcourt, Hon. Enemi Alabo George, representing Asari-Toru Constituency 2, affirmed that the pro-Wike lawmakers had decisively made the switch to the APC and had no intentions of reverting to the PDP.
George emphasized that their move to the APC was a strategic alignment with President Tinubu to ensure the realization of Nigerians’ expectations.
He stated, “We have crossed that rubicon. We moved to the APC. I told you the other day that we cannot continue because of the division in our party. We voted for the President, and if the President is worthy of our votes, then he should be worthy of our support. We have moved over to support the ‘Renewed Hope Agenda.’
“We will work hand in gloves with him to make sure that the expectation of Nigerians is fulfilled. So, we moved to the APC, and we are working with the President. We have crossed the rubicon, and there is no going back for us.”
