The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has alerted the public on what it called “the desperation of the six rebel members of the Rivers State House of Assembly, acting at the behest of Education Minister Nyesom Wike, to illegally and unconstitutionally impeach Governor Chibuike Amaechi.”

The party in a statement issued in Port Harcourt by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, SSA (Media and Public Affairs) to Rivers Interim APC Chairman, Dr. Davies Ikanya, said: “Credible information at our disposal has it that the six rebel lawmakers have concluded plans to use hired hoodlums to forcefully gain entrance into the Rivers State House of Assembly for the purpose of impeaching Governor Amaechi as directed by their sponsors in Abuja.

“As a measure of his confidence, the self-acclaimed Speaker and Leader of the six rebel lawmakers, Hon. Evans Bipi, today in Port Harcourt boasted that he holds the key to the State House of Assembly and that he will gain entrance to the complex whenever he feels like sitting with his members. Needless to say that this devilish plot, if allowed to see the light of day, will throw Rivers State into unprecedented chaos, but God in His infinite mercy will not allow it to come to pass.

“The allegation by the unprincipled leaders of PDP in Rivers State that Governor Amaechi intends to invite the majority 28 members of the State House of Assembly to sit in the Government House and pass the 2014 Budget of the State is not only laughable but also shows their level of ignorance. These funny characters forgot so soon that Governor Amaechi was the Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly for eight years and Chairman of the Speakers Forum in Nigeria; so he knows the rudiments of lawmaking and can never be involved in any arrangement that would see lawmakers sitting outside the hallowed chambers of the State House of Assembly to pass the State Budget.

“We thank Rt. Hon. Amaechree, Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, and other patriotic lawmakers in the State for ensuring that a minority group does not hold the state to ransom as desired by PDP leaders in Rivers and their paymasters in Abuja.

“We hereby call on the police – which yesterday and today stopped the majority lawmakers from sitting in the State House of Assembly – to rise to the occasion and ensure that the rebel lawmakers do not gain access to the hallowed chambers to perpetrate the weirdest impeachment in history, and one which, if permitted to happen, is capable of setting off a chain of events that could truncate Nigeria’s hard-earned democracy.”
