Defection: Eze Welcomes 27 Pro-Wike Lawmakers To Cancerous APC
…Urges National Assembly to Assume Legislative Function Over Rivers State
…. Counsels Fubara to dissolve his Cabinet & LGA Councils and appoint those that will be loyal to his vision for the State.
Erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze says the defection of 27 Lawmakers loyal to FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike strengthens signals that the former Governor is fast forwarding towards retrenchment.
In a statement made available to the media, Chief Eze said the lawmakers who could at best be described as morons are just stocked in the state legislature like pieces of furniture, receiving orders and prohibitions from Wike, regardless of whether their actions are suiting to aspirations of their constituents on whose mandate they serve.
Eze said Nyesom Wike who have boasted of having political structures in Rivers State has by his lack of character succeeded to shoot himself on the foot and to ensure he doesn’t drown alone, he conscripted the 27 moronic lawmakers who have embarked on a journey towards loosing their seats by virtue of Section 109 of the constitution.
There are calls already
from different angles including law experts and civil society groups for INEC to organise election to fill the vacant offices of the 27 Lawmakers and of course, when that happens, none of the 27 jokers will smile back to the State Assembly.
“Though temporarily let me formally welcome the 27 Lawmakers to the Cancerous political party as remarked by their Principal, Nyesom Wike who once described APC as suffering from stage four cancer which indicates that the party is at stage of total collapse.
It is sad and unfortunate that a man who has predicted the collapse of the Party is being treated as some one with the magic wand. Those of us who sacrificed our lives and blood to build up APC will not stay aloof and allow Wike and some of his misguided friends to destroy our party no matter the odds”
With the State of things in the State, Eze urged the National Assembly to, as a matter of urgency, take over the functions of the Legislature in the State to avoid crippling the economy and fortunes of progress of the State now that the Governor need to have his 2024 Budget presented and passed. This request is crucial and should be considered with swift urgency if the National Assembly has the interest of the State, South South and democracy at heart.
With this development which has exposed Wike’s determination alongside his misguided cohorts to incite crisis in Rivers State by continuing with their unwanted impeachment of the Governor, Eze called on Governor Fubara to note that it is no longer advisable to continue to play a gentleman game or stay as if nothing is happening. He said the Governor must be aware that it is time to take the fight to Wike and dismantle him formally without any further delay.
In this regard, Eze called on the Governor to be strong as the entire State is behind him in this struggle to free Rivers State from the hands of this man who has looted the State to stupor and rendered the state useless destroying all the great foundations laid by the past administrations particularly that of Rt. Hon. CHIBUIKE ROTIMI AMAECHI for a greater, better and more virile, vibrant and prosperous Rivers State.
Eze counseled that the time is ripe for Governor Fubara to dissolve the LGA Councils and the state Exco for the general interest of the state and his administration.
He said the dissolution will enable the Governor select those who shares in his vision to be reappointed into the State EXCO . “If he misses this opportunity he should have himself alone to be blamed” Eze warned.
