The party chairman said PDP has no plans to impeach the Rivers State governor.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State on Wednesday denied any plan to impeach governor Rotimi Amaechi.
The State Chairman of the party, Felix Obuah, told newsmen in Port Harcourt that the allegation was frivolous and unfounded.
“I’m a law abiding citizen of Nigeria; I know that as a party chairman, I have no constitutional right to impeach a governor.
“We are not the legislature that checks the excesses of the executive, we have no such plans because, we have come to unite the state and the party,’’ he said.
Mr. Obuah urged the governor to run a transparent and accountable leadership, aimed at transforming the state.
He called on the people to disregard the alarm raised by some lawmakers who had called for protest against the PDP-led executive.
The PDP chairman said that he suspended the lawmakers to deter others who might be planning any form of anti-party activities.
“Disciplinary measures are meant for offenders,” he said.
He urged the loyal party members to continue to support the leadership of the party.
He commended President Goodluck Jonathan for ensuring the prevalence of the rule of law and discipline in the party.
“The PDP is big enough to accommodate everyone, including the aggrieved members.
“There was no time that we individually or collectively planned to plunge the state into chaos or political restiveness as being peddled by some aggrieved members,” he said.
