PDP Rivers State Condemns Hasty Takeover Of State House Of Assembly by jpilata(m): 5:17am On Jul 27, 2013
The Rivers state chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the resolution of the Nigerian Senate to take over the affairs of the Rivers State House of Assembly saying it is rather toohasty and cannot be in the best interest of the state.
In a decision reached on Thursday, the party expressed its dissatisfaction with the position of the National Assembly throughJerry Needam, the Special Adviser on Media to the State Chairman of the party, Hon Felix Obuah in a statement.
The party argued that the only rationale in the findings of the investigation by the Senate Committee on the Rivers state crisis which indicted Governor Chibuike Amaechi is that he (Amaechi) having lost grip and can no longer conduct the affairs of the State, should throw in the towel.
Besides, the takeover of the affairs of the State House of Assembly has created a vacuum inthe governance of the state, which further weakens the collapsing leadership structure of the Amaechi administration and therefore does not help the state out of the present situation.
The statement went further to say that the highly reputed Nigerian Senate went on to hastily deliberate on the issue when it knows that the matter is in court over an earlier decision by the National Assembly to take over the State House of Assembly,describing it as deviant and prejudicial and from the position of the law as cited by the National Assembly, it’s evident that the only reason for their unnecessary intervention is to save Amaechi from a possible impeachment as though the impeachment clause is unconstitutional and affects only Rivers State House of Assembly.
The party asked why the governor of Rivers state is afraid of being impeached since he claims that all the House of Assembly members save five are his ardent supporters.
“We are particularly worried because in all of this, it’s the resources of the state and the taxpayers’ money that Governor Amaechi is frittering away to woo supporters for his personal ambition to become a vice president at the expense of the state
