The Factional Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly, Hon Martin Amaewhule has vowed to reclaim Rivers State from Governor Sim Fubara.

The speaker in his speech is anticipating an attack on the Assembly Quarters and asserting lawmakers’ resilience after their defection from PDP to APC.

He cited constitutional provisions, criticizing PDP’s response to the burning of the Assembly Complex, and declaring actions by a rival group as null and void.

Meanwhile, Martin Amaewhule, has vowed to reclaim the state from Governor Sim Fubara.


He, hinted that there are plots to attack the Assembly Quarters on Monday(Today), insisting that no matter the attack, the lawmakers will be resolute.

Noting that the lawmakers will remain resolute because they have the mandate of Rivers people to be in the House, he insisted that their defection from the People Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC) was due to the crisis in PDP, just as they vowed to continue sitting despite pundits’ view to the contrary.
   
Amaewhule disclosed this, yesterday, while addressing state delegates at the APC dedication service and stakeholders meeting held at the Port Harcourt Polo Club, stating further that they abandoned PDP for APC also because of the leadership style of President Bola Tinubu.   He claimed that the defected members followed due process and acted on section 109 subsection 1 of the 1999 Constitution.

“We made sure that we followed due process, and that we did not do anything outside the provisions of the said Constitution. It has given room for people to defect, which is in section 109 subsection 1(g), which allows serving legislators, who want to defect, to do so. There is a division in PDP. So, in line with that section, we defected to the APC,” he said. 
   
Amaewhule regretted that despite the burning and consequent demolition of the Assembly Complex, PDP never said anything nor condemned the actions of the governor.
   
“We heard that some four persons, a Committee of Friends, are meeting somewhere. But the House of Assembly has defined that the only way you can convene the House is to have a quorum. And a quorum is 11 and if it is not up to 11, anything that they do is a social club. So, whatever they are doing in the name of the Assembly is null and void.”
