Members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, who recently switched allegiance from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC), have unequivocally dismissed any chance of returning to their former party.
Led by Martins Amaewhule and aligned with the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) minister, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, the lawmakers withdrew the impeachment notice served on Governor Siminalayi Fubara during a peace meeting initiated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The meeting aimed to resolve the ongoing conflict between Wike and Fubara.
Addressing reporters in Port Harcourt, Hon. Enemi Alabo George, representing Asari-Toru Constituency 2 in the House of Assembly, affirmed that the pro-Wike lawmakers had crossed a point of no return and would not reconsider rejoining the PDP.
George emphasized that their move to the APC was a deliberate choice to collaborate with President Tinubu in fulfilling the expectations of Nigerians. 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 there is no going back for us,” George asserted.
