The Pro-Wike Sacked Rivers Lawmaker’s Seat Remains Vacant As The Appeal Court Didn’t Decide On The Validity Of Their Illegal Decampment –Hon Ikenga Ugochinyere

According to the report from the Vanguard, the Spokesperson of the Coalition of a group of House of Representatives members known as the G60 lawmakers, Hon. Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere clarified that the Court of Appeal’s ruling should not be misinterpreted, as it focused on the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court in determining the legality of lawmakers’ defections.

He emphasized that the Appeal Court did not address the validity of the lawmakers’ defections or the declaration of their seats as vacant.

He maintained that the current Rivers State House of Assembly Speaker, Victor Oko-Jumbo, remains in his position, and the legal proceedings regarding the vacant seats are still ongoing.

He said, “The Court of Appeal ruling today shouldn’t be misconstrued in any way. The Pro-Wike sacked Rivers lawmaker’s seat remains vacant as the Appeal court didn’t decide on the validity of their illegal decampment nor the declaration of their seats vacant. A’Court focused on declaring that the Federal High Court is the only court with the jurisdiction to decide on the legality or illegality of decampment thereby ruling against Rivers High Court proceedings.

So the actions of the House formerly led by Ehi in declaring the seat vacant have not been declared null and void by any court. Ok Jumbo remains the speaker of Rivers State house of Assembly, the legal fire works continue, as the declaration of the vacant seats is still valid and subject to pending litigation.<< Sēē Morē >>
