Erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has cautioned Marthin Amaewhule, the self-acclaimed Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly and his band of disgruntled former lawmakers to exercise restraint in their quest to remain relevant in the political playground.

In a statement made available to the media houses, Chief Eze said Mr. Amaewhule and 26 others who willingly vacated their seats at the Rivers State House of Assembly upon their defection to the APC by virtue of Section 109 of the Constitution, became beneficiaries of Gov. Fubara’s magnanimity when, in line with the directive of President Bola Tinubu, he continued to fund and accord them some recognitions against the spirit of the Constitution, in a bid to arrest hostilities in the polity.

Notwithstanding the Governor’s goodwill, Eze said Amaewhule and company have continued to heat up the polity with a floodgate of inflammatory comments and inciting actions capable of impregnating the already hostile and polluted atmosphere with unnecessary crisis just in order to please the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, who is the chief-proponent of the the whole turmoil in Rivers State.

Eze cautioned that if the acts of Rt Hon. Martin Chike Amaewhule and his co former Lawmakers are not checked they may succeed to plunge Rivers State into an unprecedented crisis that may truncate our nascent democracy.

Not minding the fact as approved by the Supreme Court of Nigeria and canvased severally by Chief Nyesom Wike, erstwhile Governor of Rivers State and Minister of FCT that once an elected representative of a particular political platform decamps to another political organization such an elected representative ceases or loses his or her seat, the FCT Minister has turned around to do the opposite.

Rt. Hon. Oko-Jumbo

Mr. Wike campaigned against the defection of erstwhile Governors of CRS and that of Ebonyi Dr. D. N. Umahi and CRS State lawmakers when they decamped from PDP to APC and ensured that the Legislators from CRS loose their seats, Eze therefore wondered why Wike is now supporting the illegality taking place in Rivers State after the 27 Legislators decamped from PDP to APC.

The APC Chief described as the hallucination of a demented soul, the call by one Tony Okocha who is an imposter as he is yet to revalidate his membership of APC after he decamped with Senator Abe to SDP for Marthin Amaewhule and company to begin impeachment proceedings against the Governor of Rivers State, stressing that the group lacked the constitutional flavour act for the state in the capacity of lawmakers, having lost their seats to defection.

Eze urges the Governor and Nigerians to ignore OKOCHA as he has never been a serious minded fellow.

Eze cautions Nigerians not to stand aloof and watch our hard-earned democracy destroyed by a few selfish group of people who have corned the finances of Rivers State this past eight years and want the trend to continue to the detriment of the emancipation and development of the State.

He congratulated the new Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Victor Oko-Jaja and charged him and his team to stand strong in the discharge of their legislative functions so that the state and her people can have a sigh of relief.

On the lawfulness of the election of Rt. Hon. JUMBO as the substantive Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly by three members of the House, Eze postulated asserting the experiences in Ondo, Edo, Plateau, Kogi where fewer members of their Houses held sway contrary to the majority members of the Houses. Eze recalled when Wike wanted to use five Lawmakers to attempt to impeach the then Governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi

Eze highlighted that the election of Rt. Hon. Jumbo is very lawful because in absence of other rightful Lawmakers the very few that are remaining thereby constitute the State Assembly. This action is informed by the absence of 27lawmakers who have by their defections have ceased to be Lawmakers and in their absence the few Lawmakers remaining will have to elect their Speakers pending when INEC will conduct election to elect new representatives from the areas the former 27lawmakers came from. That is the Law and in line with the Supreme Court stand and our constitution.

On if the Lawmakers that elected Jumbo were on suspension, my answer to that is an illegal Lawmakers can’t suspend genuine Lawmakers so the argument of suspension doesn’t come in in any form in this regard.

Eze called on the judiciary to expedite action in laying to rest all speculations about the legitimacy or otherwise of the Amaewhule led ex-Lawmaker. He stressed that given that given the situation, it appears the presidency is enjoying the undemocratic acts of a group of lawless former Lawmakers abusing and decimating governance in Rivers State by voiding the authority of the governor in lawmaking process in the State.

He said seven illegal laws have been passed by them to weaken the powers of the Governor to govern the State to the pride of her citizens.

Eze further emphasized that if this illegality taking place in Rivers State are not checked and these fellows called to order, they may summon the courage in line with their satanic agenda to start impeachment process against the Governor anytime very soon and when that happens, the atmosphere will be delivered of a crisis capable of culminating the whole encasement called Nigeria.

Eze noted that Amaewhule and his cohorts, including their supporters and sponsors should call themselves to order and stop further demonstrating acts that paints them as enemies of Rivers State as the Governor is doing his best to correct the wrongs of the past eight years.
