A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Bode George says the crisis in the Rivers State House of Assembly and the state in general over plots to impeach the governor is despicable.
There was an attempt to impeach Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State on Monday, October 30, allegedly being carried out by the PDP lawmakers faction loyal to former Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike. The leader of the House was also removed while a factional speaker emerged same day.
Responding to the criris, Bode George said elders of the party should call Wike and Fubara to order before things get out of hand in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-controlled oil-rich state.
“What I will tell all sides is that, like I said, we need elders in the room who would call everybody to order. What is happening in Rivers is despicable. It is heart rendering and I am very unhappy because Rivers is almost a one-party state,” George said on Channels Television, Monday night.
“And for such a thing to be happening at this particular time, it’s bothering me, and the party must immediately get involved. The elections are over, the tribunal and electoral process is also over and now let’s come and rebuild the party.
“All those broken areas must be patched up so that we can remain the indivisible and undefeatable party for the future. I am very sad about what is going on in Rivers State.

“All sides should calm down. Let the elders get involved to be able to resolve the crisis. In an organisation, yes, you would have differences. We can disagree without being disagreeable. Please, all sides should calm down and walk the part of honour,” he maintained.
