Two of the 27 defecting lawmakers apologize to Fubara and rejoin the PDP.According to information acquired by The Guardian, two of the 27 Rivers House of Assembly members who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday have now reversed their decision, and many more are assiduously pleading with the party to accept them return. 

Tonye Adoki, a member representing Port Harcourt Constituency II, and Linda Somiari Stewart, a member representing Okrika Constituency at the State House of Assembly, are the two legislators who have so far apologized and come back to Governor Siminalayi Fubara. 

Additional defectors are vying to rejoin, according to Mr. Joseph Johnson, the State Commissioner for Information and Communication, who confirmed the development. 

Johnson affirmed that the Fubara government will keep taking actions to solidify peace in the state, pointing out that the state needs both to prosper and remain united.

According to The Guardian's observations, the majority of the politicians who defected were only following orders without fully understanding the consequences. 

Their decision to break away from the defection may have been influenced by claims made by certain attorneys and political pundits in the State that the legislators let a self-serving godfather govern them, shooting themselves in the foot. 

A few attorneys contended that the MPs' citation of split as the reason for their defection was unfounded, emphasizing that there isn't a factional chairman in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or any other crisis scenario that may have precipitated their decision. 

According to Prof. Richard Wokocha, a constitutional lawyer and lecturer at Rivers State University, the law recognizes the four lawmakers who are still members of the PDP as the only genuine members of the State Assembly.

There is no party crisis or any legitimate circumstance, he claimed, to support the defection.

Wokocha stated that the state's situation has entered a new phase as a result of the defection.
