The debacle in River State is that of personal ambition. Wike is fighting to be like the jagaban of Rivers politics and Fubara want to be a Wike in River State.

Those lawmakers seize to be members of the Rivers State House of Assembly right from the day their seats were declared vacant, followed by a judgment from a court of competent jurisdiction, the High Court in Port Harcourt, which has since barred them from gaining access to the Assembly complex under any guise or form.

Wike is merely leading them on and giving them false hope when they are already in a hopeless situation. 

INEC, on the other hand, is expected to conduct by-elections into those vacant seats so that the people of those state constituencies can have some representatives at the Rivers State House of Assembly. 
don't mind wike, he always leads people astray. The same thing he did with the G5 governors, where are they today ?

It is a testament to Wike's lack of political sagacity and his belief in the rule of might over the rule of law that he made such an unforced error.
How lucky Fubara is!!
Just imagine if Wike had been calm and strategic enough to not make that blunder of defection. Probably, SIM will be out of the seat by now.
Wike forgot that Tinubu owes him nothing and can't fight his personal war for him using the presidency. The highest you can get is having the instrument of coercion on your side and that is proving to not be enough now.
You have said it all.

What did fubara do that warrant impeaching him under five months if not psychopath on Wike side.
Gra gra to show might .. forgetting he is just an ordinary man

It is not automatic. Stop misleading people. The speaker has to give effect to it and didn't. They remain lawmakers until the court says otherwise.

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

I want to bet you that none of the 27 lawmakers (Noisemakers) will make it back to the house. You seems to underrate the power of incumbent . Wike have lost it , that is why they are fighting to remain relevant in the state. I dare them to come out and contest again. Gov. SIM is ready to empty Rivers State treasury to make sure they don't smell there again. And if Wike dares to go against this, he will be persona non Grata. Go and read about Sullivan and Chimaroke Nnamani. Whoever advised the 27 lawmakers, now seen as noisemakers to defect to APC did not advice them wrongly but succeeded in killing them and their political career. So, let them seek peace and look for a way to reconcile with the number 1 in Rivers State. Wike holds no powers again in Rivers State, The Governor control the resources. And if they try to impeach the Governor, Rivers State will burn. Yes it will burn, because nobody disturbed (Wike) him when he was the governor, so let him rest and allow SIM do his tenure in peace.

How many lawmakers has it affected since it was enacted?, abi lawmakers no dey defect again?

It affected Dave Umahi. The court sacked him, he went to appeal and lost. Then proceeded to Supreme Court, before the judgement, his tenure finished. He lost the case there too but his tenure had elapsed so there was no enforcement.

That's why nobody is defecting like they used to do in the past. Have you heard of anyone defection in this new administration?? They all know what will happen. The Rivers former lawmakers were just stupid and I'll advised.

That you see people stealing and going Scot-free does not make stealing legal.

One day, you might be the one to be used to set example so as to serve as a deterrence to others in future.

Difference is it's not being contested and neither are they trying to unseat their executive. Nigerian laws are usually selective but rules are rules.

the Supreme Court has made this clear in the case of Ifedayo Abegunde and Labour Party. You cannot on your own decide that there is a division in the Party and it doesn't mean a division in the Local Government or in a State, it has to be an issue down the line, at the National level.

The ONLY place you can abuse this man is online.

If you see him passing you will just be looking because your entire life is very insignificant compared to his.

A lawyer at the highest levels is expressing his legal opinion and you insult him because it's not to your liking.

Even if your parents didn't train you well- can't you train yourself?

As a Lawyer, Wike f**ked up on this. He wanted to impress his new masters without taking the legal implications into consideration.he is shouting all over the place that he cant be stopped. Well maybe he will amend the constitution before the courts sits.

It seems Yorubas are the only ones supporting Wike in this issue. Could it be because he rigged Rivers state presidential election for Tinubu?

Now anything called impeachment on Fubara is not happening until the court decide that the 27 lawmakers maintained that seat, na that time Fubara go see war, but if they decide the other way and the 27 law makers seat are declare vacant then Fubara should buckle up and make sure they don't win election because automatically APC will give those lawmakers direct tickets in their constituencies, so is left to Fubara to get grassroot politicians from PDP to counter them but if those APC guys win? Fubara won't spend 4 months as gov in Rivers state

You have forgotten that before they can function as a member of the parliament, they must be sworn in. If they refuse to align with the governor even after winning the election, none of them will be sworn in. I believe with this, Wike may lose some of these guys.
