Rivers crisis: ”We won’t return to PDP” – Pro-Wike lawmakers declare

Hon. Enemi Alabo George, one of the 27 members of the Rivers State House of Assembly who dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP( for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said they all have no plan to return to the PDP.

Speaking in an interview on Channels TV on Wednesday night, George, the chairman of the House Committee on Information, insisted that there was division in the PDP and that there was no going back on their decision.

His words, “We have crossed that Rubicon. We are not going back there. No, we moved to the APC. Other than the division issue in our party, we voted for Mr President, and if we found the President worthy of our vote, then I think we should find him worthy of our support.

“We have moved over to join his ‘Renewed Hope Agenda’, and we are hand in glove with him to ensure that the expectations of Nigerians are fulfilled. So, we have moved to the APC, we are working with Mr President, we have crossed that Rubicon and there is no going back for us.”

When asked about the peace meeting and the number of people present, he said there were many people at the meeting, adding, “I’m sure we were between 100 and 200, but I’m not certain about that (figure).

“We had members of the House of National Assembly, members of the House of Assembly, the governor, commissioners, the deputy governor, elder statesmen, two former governors, traditional rulers, the chairman of the Rivers State Traditional Rulers Council, elders and opinion leaders in the state. It was massive.”
