The people of Abia South Senatorial District, Tuesday, commenced the process of recalling Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, representing the area at the National Assembly.
This followed a resolution reached by stakeholders from various political parties in the six local government areas in Abia South under the aegis of Coalition of Abia South Senatorial Movement.
leader of the movement, Prince Paul Ikonne, who addressed journalists in Aba, said the decision to recall Senator Abaribe was based on the failure of the Senator to impact meaningfully on the welfare of the people through quality representation.
Prince Ikonne said the senator was elected to push for governance, make good laws but that the reverse was now the case.
“We have had a disappointing representation from the Senator and it is not something we can continue to tolerate. Since he lacks the wherewithal to represent the good people of Abia South, we are left with no choice than to commence his immediate recall”, he said.
“The process of his recall has therefore commenced”, he added, noting that “we will follow due process in the recall. The collation of signatures from wards and electoral units will be completed in two weeks.”
Also speaking, the state chairman of Advanced Peoples Democratic Party APDA, Chief Nwobodo Nwanganga observed that the efforts to call the Senator to order had not yielded any positive result,.
A member of the PDP from Obingwa local government, Chief Chima Enwere Uzo said the move to recall Senator Abaribe was long overdue as he had derailed from the mandate given to him, noting that there was nothing to show for his twelve years in the Senate.
