PDP Urges Defected House of Reps Members To Return Home …Appeals To INEC To Conduct Fresh Elections

Sequel to the ruling of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja Monday, March 31, 2014 on the continued illegal participation in the proceedings of the Federal House of Representatives by lawmakers that dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP platform to join The All Progressives Congress, APC, the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, wants such affected legislators to retire home immediately.

The party through a statement from the office of the State Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah and signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Jerry Needam enjoined the House of Representatives members from Rivers State involved in the controversial cross over to proceed home with immediate effect having betrayed the people’s mandate.

Particularly referring to Chief Andrew Uchendu, formerly representing Emuoha/Ikwerre Federal Constituency, Ogbonma Nwuke, Etche/Omuma Federal Constituency, Barry Npigi, Tai/Eleme/Oyigbo, Dakuku Peterside, Opobo/Andoni, Asita Honourable Asita, Ahoada/Abua/Odual, Maurice Poronem etc, the PDP said it amounts to self deceit to continue to hang around the green chamber, saying “you cannot eat your cake and still have it”.

The PDP notes that it’s in the best interest of the defecting lawmakers to take the court’s ruling in good faith instead of embarking on endless appeals that will still end up against them.

Meanwhile, the party has enjoined the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to begin to initiate the process of electing replacements for the embattled lawmakers.

“This is a point of law and is unambiguously clear. So it’s expected that as lawmakers, they should be the first to uphold court decisions based on point of law”, the PDP declared. ###
