The Peoples Democratic Party Rivers State Chapter has told the 27 Lawmakers who defected from the PDP to the APC in Rivers State to stop disturbing the peace of the State but allow the Court determine their eroded legitimacy status.

PDP State Publicity Secretary, Hon Sydney Tambari Gbara who made the remark following a Press statement by members of the illegal Assembly, urged them to address their legitimacy question in the light of Section 109 of the Constitution of Nigeria 1999 as amended

He told them to burry their heads in shame that while other State Houses of Assembly are making laws for the good governance of their respective states, those in Rivers are busy making frantic efforts to destroy the state and frustrate orders.

“You have several cases querying your legality in Courts, why are you running away from them. You are here constituting public nuisance, engaging in illegal assembly, taking illegal decisions and making illegal laws, knowing full well that you no longer represent your constituents. If you want to know what Rivers people think about you go to streets and ask questions. You are an illegal assembly and your laws are inconsequential to Rivers people”

He said the group of outlawed lawmakers have decided to be used as agents of destabilization of their state, the government and it’s people, warning that posterity would not be kind to them for choosing the path of destruction rather than peace and reconciliation.

The PDP Publicity Secretary also responded to claims of non implementation of the 8 Point Peace Accord by Tony Okocha.
“Although we are not holding brief for the state government, as a party, let me for the upteenth time, tell Tony Okocha that Governor Siminialayi Fubara has in his desire to further deepen peace in the state implemented the Peace Accord and in accordance with our laws. So your attempt to try to stampede Governor Fubara into taking unconstitutional actions is like blowing hot air, he said.
