Abia South Senatorial Movement, a group, has started processes of recalling Enyinnaya Abaribe, Senator representing the constituency, from the senate. The group said the senator had failed his constituents hence the decision.
Paul Ikonne, the leader of the group, said at a meeting that Abaribe had been playing opposition politics which was not in the interest of the people. He urged constituents of the district to fill the forms and ensure that Abaribe is recalled from the senate.
“We are here to share the recall forms as law-abiding citizens and we will follow due process and commence the recall of Senator Abaribe. We will use the same PVC, which we used in voting him into the Senate, to recall him.
“This move is not the affair of any political party because all political parties in the zone are represented here. We will ensure that this recall form gets to all the political units and wards in the senatorial zone. We call on our brothers and sisters to fill this form when they see it and we will give ourselves the next 14 days to complete the collection of signatures from various units and wards where the votes were cast in order to compile the signatures and forward same to the Independent National Electoral Commission,” Ikonne said.
