Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has asked the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, to either reconcile with his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, or defect to the opposition in order to resolve the crisis in the state.

"It is not possible for five out of 32 people to say they want to remove the Speaker of the state House of Assembly. That is totally wrong. But the truth must be told; Governor Amaechi should be told the whole truth.
“We think he is the cause of some of these crises. If he wants to defect to the opposition, let him do so. He cannot continue to use the platform of PDP to hold the party to ransom and think there will be no crisis. Most of the people who are supporting him from the opposition will not tolerate this kind behaviour from any of their members.”
The impossiblity of just 5 lawmakers to chase away 27 others who convened for a plenary session and impeach a sitting speaker is too mind buggling to imagine.
The fact is some lawmakers are riding on the hope that the Governor can ride out this storm and they can still be in his good grace.. Amaechi would not willingly want to defect.
