In a press release signed by the Honourable Members and made available to journalist, the Assembly noted that they are not a robotic institution that can be influenced by external body unduly.
The statement went further to said the recent call by Senator Melaye for the impeachment proceeding against the governor is an insult to the constitution, and the members said they distanced themselves from the purported impeachment process.
