The All Progressives Congress in Imo has called for peace following the suspension of six House of Assembly members in the state.
The spokesman of the party in the state, Cajetan Duke, stated this during an interview with journalists in Owerri on Thursday.
Duke in his reaction said the Assembly is “an independent organ of government”.
The party’s spokesman advised the suspended lawmakers to desist from acts capable of jeopardizing their public image and the legislative House.
He further stated that the party would not only respect the independence of the Assembly but also align with any decisions taken by its leadership.
“APC respects the independence of the House of Assembly and supports any disciplinary measures that make for decorum.”
“We urge the suspended lawmakers to resolve issues using internal resolution mechanism,” he said.
Duke added that the period of suspension is a sign that the development is not a case of a political witch-hunt against any political party.
The speaker of the house suspended six lawmakers, four are members of the APC while the other two are members of the Peoples Democratic Party.
