Call to impeach Obiano baseless, APGA tells PDP
Member, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, has called on the Emeakai-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State to avoid incurring the people’s wrath by asking the state House of Assembly to commence impeachment against Governor Willie Obiano for constitutional breaches, describing the call as baseless.
Reacting to a letter written to the lawmakers by the faction, asking for the immediate impeachment of Obaino for abandoning his duty post without communicating his absence to the House, the Ogirisi Igbo said, such call is capable of incurring the wrath of the good people of the state.
“PDP is under a spell in Anambra. They almost succeeded in ruining the state when the party was in power. It was under the PDP government that schools in Anambra went into oblivion for over 12 months, under PDP, descended on Government House and destroyed government properties, under PDP, workers and pensioners were owed backlog of arrears of salary, under this same party, Anambra was vulnerable to armed dare devil criminals,” he said.
He added: “I wonder what now gave them the impetus and audacity to call for the governor’s impeachment. A governor who promptly ensures that workers are paid regularly, a governor who brought adequate security measures to the people and the state, a governor who has lifted the agriculture sector to a higher level, a governor who is currently executing projects in all 179 communities in Anambra, and a governor who has been endorsed for a second term by the people of the state. Is this the kind that deserves impeachment?”
He however commended the lawmakers for ignoring PDP’s call for impeachment, urging party members to leave before PDP sinks in its current leadership crisis.
