Court sacks 20 Cross River assembly members over defection ...
But they appealed the judgement.

Did INEC conduct fresh election to replace them?

I do not understand how the law works. I've seen Governors switch party and still remain on their seats, Senators and Rep members switch party and still retain their seats. Can Lawyers in the house kindly explain the difference in this case

In the past yes but under the new electoral law, your candidature is tied to the political party on which you won an election and not you as an individual.

INEC please do the needful, though I know Wike's men will still win the election.

They are in a tight position, if they accept to have a re run, that’s means all the laws they made will be null and void especially that law related to tenure of local government chairman. Their tenure expires next month and Sim will use that opportunity to put his own loyalists as caretaker chairmen of all the local governments in the state. This is what they are desperate to avoid.

From the days of Goodluck Jonathan, a close observer of politics will notice that Wike is a warrior, he fought against Ameachi a sitting Governor and won ,fought against Buhari and won and fought against Atiku and won.. He is a terrible fighter and risk taker.. Fubara is an ingrate .. how do you turn against a man that took you from level 14 in civil service to your present heights ? Wike wont take nonsense from the man

Unfortunately for dem, immediately after their defections, their seats were declared/pronounced VACANT.

To Guv Sim Fubara: Plan ahead: get MENS to occupy those VACANT SEATS in the next elections; that's the nitty-gritty of your next move. No dulling-o!

Rivers Citizens must not allow Wike & his ilks to take dem back!

Abuja Residents: Pls sack Wike already. E don March line tire: distraction, conflict of interest, irresponsible utterances, negligence abi dereliction of duty, etc!

So because he helped him to become governor, he should open the state treasury to him and be giving him 20bn every month?

Not the same clerk. Everything the four suspended members are doing is a nullity.

This is a recent law enacted in the last constitutional review by the 9th Senate. It wasn't a law during the time of the people you mentioned.
Secondly, just because a person committed an offence and was not brought before the court, it means any other who does same can go scout free.

I still don't get it.

Their Defection was a gravely political naive move...

Even if Wike wanted to deal with Fubara, he could have let the lawmakers remain in PDP and counter him from there.

Whoever advised them to defect led them to their political doom,, it was a political suicide...
Overzealousness plus Karma of their disenchantment of Rivers people caught up with them. Na so God de take punish evil doers..😃

Once there was no final court judgement that sacked them, they remain on their seat.
