How APC reacts to Imo House Assembly crisis

0 160

In the wake of the suspension of six House of Assembly members of the Imo State House of Assembly on Thursday, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State has sued for peace in resolving the crisis in the assembly.

The publicity secretary of the party in the state, Cajetan Duke, said this while speaking to newsmen in Owerri, the state capital.

Describing the Assembly as “an independent organ of government”, Duke called on the suspended lawmakers to desist from acts capable of jeopardising their public image and the legislative House.

He said as law abiding persons, the party would not only respect the independence of the assembly but also align with any decisions taken by its leadership.

“APC respects the independence of the House of Assembly and supports any disciplinary measures that make for decorum.

“We urge the suspended lawmakers to resolve issues using internal resolution mechanisms,” he said.

He said the nature of the suspension was an indication that it was not a case of political witch-hunt against any political party.

Six members of the Imo House of Assembly were suspended by the Speaker, Paul Emeziem, for alleged “unparliamentary” conduct.

Four of the suspended lawmakers are members of the ruling APC, while the other two are of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The suspension led to a rowdy session as the suspended lawmakers reacted violently.
