Rivers Lawmakers’ Defection Plot To Impeach Fubara – PDP Chieftain Says

Anabs Sara-Igbe, a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, claims that the defection of the 27 members of the Rivers State House of Assembly is a plan to further the process of removing Governor Siminialayi Fubara from office.

Sara-Igbe made this statement during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today program. On Monday, 27 out of 32 members of the Rivers State Assembly switched from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

But they need to understand that they are members of the House, but the people of the state are more concerned with the progress happening in the state. We don’t want any action that will cause more problems for the state.”
