Perish The Thought Of Impeaching Fubara, PDP Tells APC.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to abolish any thought of impeaching Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara.

The statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba, on Wednesday, was in response to the directive of the APC Chairman in Rivers State, Tony Okocha, to the members of the state House of Assembly to commence impeachment process against Fubara.

Okocha had threatened that if the Assembly members failed to restart the impeachment proceedings against the governor, he would invoke party discipline upon them.

However, Ologunagba said that such statement by Okocha exposed the vile desperation of the APC to forcefully take over the oil-rich South-South state.

The PDP claimed that the lawmakers being directed the APC chairman are not legally members of the Rivers State House of Assembly and cannot contemplate or exercise such powers under the law.

The party described the call for the governor’s impeachment as a brazen call for anarchy as it amounts to an attempt to forcefully overthrow a democratic order.
