The people of Abia South Senatorial District have commenced the process of recalling Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, representing the area at the National Assembly.
This is following 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.
Speaking to newsmen, the leader of the movement, Prince Paul Ikonne, 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.
He said: “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.
“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) Nwobodo Nwanganga observed that the efforts to call the Senator to order had not yielded any positive result.
