George, speaking on Friday, underscored the gravity of the situation in Rivers State, cautioning against dismissing the threats made by certain lawmakers in the state House of Assembly to impeach Governor Siminalayi Fubara. He emphasized the imperative for President Bola Tinubu to recognize the seriousness of the situation and take appropriate action.

He stressed the need for proactive engagement, asserting that indifference is not an option when the stability of the state and the interests of the PDP are at stake. Citing Section 109 (1) (g) of the 1999 Constitution, George argued that legislators defecting to another party forfeit their seats, thereby invalidating any attempts to impeach the governor by such individuals.

In his words: “So their plot to commence impeachment proceedings against the governor is already in vain,” he stressed.

George urged for restraint and adherence to the rule of law, cautioning against actions that could potentially destabilize the state and jeopardize Nigeria’s democratic foundations. He invoked the historical precedent of “Operation Wetie” in the defunct Western Region, which ultimately led to the demise of the First Republic in 1966, as a stark warning against the perils of political upheaval.

Appealing to the sense of responsibility among members of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the PDP, George implored them to swiftly address the crisis to prevent further escalation. He called upon all stakeholders to prioritize the collective welfare of Nigerians above partisan interests, urging for a cessation of provocative rhetoric and actions that could undermine democracy.

George issued a fervent plea for the preservation of democracy, emphasizing that any threats to its integrity must be promptly quelled to safeguard the nation’s stability and prosperity.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
