You Clowns Are Still Walking Freely Because Fubara Has Decided To Obey Tinubu - G-60 Blast 27 Rivers Lawmakers

A group of federal lawmakers identified as G-60 have stated that members of the Rivers State House of Assembly lack the legitimacy to amend the State Public Procurement law.

The legislators stated this while reacting to the alleged overriding of assent of Governor Siminialayi Fubara to pass the 2024 Rivers State Public Procurement (Amendment) Bill.

They argued that the purported veto of the powers of 27 persons parading themselves as Rivers lawmakers was nothing but legislative madness taken too far by some clowns.

Speaking via a statement by its spokesperson and the member representing Ideato North South Federal Constituency of Imo State in the House of Representatives, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the group described the veto as legislative rascality.

They maintained that the ‘Abuja-based lawmakers’ who operate from a two-room self contain in Emohua and Abuja are still moving on freely parading themselves on account of the mercy of Fubara in obedience to the peace accord orchestrated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Ugochinyere said, “These clowns as far as we are concerned are still moving about freely parading themselves freely because of Governor Fubara’s Mercy and largely in obedience to the peace accord brokered by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to end the political crisis in the state.

“However, while the Governor has stuck to the accord, his predecessor and Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Minister, Chief Nyesom Wike has not with what his loyalists are doing.

“One such evidence is the purported veto of Rivers procurement law which is an unenforceable legislative madness by impostors who are scared of the impact of Fubara’s infrastructure revolution.

“If not, how can people worth calling lawmakers even think that a mobilization fee of not more than 20 percent of any contract sum is enough for suppliers or contractors to move to site or provide goods and services in the present economic quagmire masterminded by their allies in the federal government?

“It is also on notice that these persons who sit in some hotel rooms in Abuja or anywhere their paymasters take them to make such pronouncements have lost the status of lawmakers ever since they dumped the party, the PDP which was a vehicle that brought them to power and joined APC.

“The action violated Section 109 (1) (g) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) which states that; Section 109 (1) of the 1999 Constitution provides that a member of a House of Assembly shall vacate his seat in the House if … (g) being a person whose election to the House of Assembly was sponsored by a political Party, he becomes a member of another political party before the expiration of the period for which that House was elected.

“To this end, these persons are not lawmakers, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should rise to the occasion and conduct an election to fill those vacant seats and save Rivers from this continuous illegality and Nigeria the embarrassment that non-existing lawmakers are causing too often.”
