Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has lashed out at Senators and House of Representatives’ members elected on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over their roles in the election of National Assembly principal officers.

PDP’s National Working Committee (NWC) had on June 11 endorsed Senator Ali Ndume for the Senate presidency and Umaru Bako for Speaker of House of Representatives.

But Senator Ahmad Lawan emerged Senate President while Femi Gbajabiamila was elected Speaker as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) planned.

Lawan won with 79 votes to Ndume’s 28 despite PDP having 46 senators.

Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was elected deputy senate president with 68 votes to Ike Ekeremadu’s 37.

With PDP boasting of over 140 members in the lower chambers, Mr Gbajabiamila won with 284 votes.

Wike, while receiving visiting Bishops of the Anglican Province of the Niger Delta at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Friday, said the lawmakers sold “out themselves for one plate of porridge.’’

He said: “I don’t trust any human being. It is difficult for me to give 100 percent trust that a man will continue to be like this or like that.

“So as a politician, one group you must watch very carefully are the politicians. They are easily swayed. Some believe. When they believe, they believe.

“Something can entice politicians and they change. If you watch what happened at the National Assembly, you can see that this is the attitude of politicians.

“You see the party has a position; before you know it, they are selling out themselves for one plate of porridge.”
