Amaechi Lacks Moral Justification To Speak On Sanusi's Suspension – PDP
The Rivers State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says
Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi lacks the moral justification to fault
President Goodluck Jonathan on the suspension of Sanusi Lamido as Governor
of the Central Bank.
The Party in a press statement in Port Harcourt by Jerry Needam, Special
Adviser, Media to the State Chairman, Bro. Felix Obuah said no public
officer in this political dispensation has treated court rulings and
judgments with the degree of scorn and impunity as Amaechi has done.
The PDP recalls the arbitrary suspension of Council Chairmen of Okrika,
Eleme, Ikwerre and Obio/Akpor at different times by Gov. Amaechi, besides
the illegal seizure of some of the Councils' federal allocations, and
wonders how Amaechi could be so forgetful of his stock in trade to cast
aspersions and blame for perceived injustice.
“What about the unconstitutional dissolution of the Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni
Local Government Council due to the court order, reinstating the illegal
suspension of the duly elected council chairman, the sacking of the
legally constituted Universal Basic Education Board (UBE).
The list is endless”, the Party remarked.
The PDP maintains that even though the President has the right and is
backed up by law to discipline any appointee of the federal government,
Gov. Amaechi remains the least to lend a voice to any perceived case of
not acting according to the rule of the law by any government official and
should keep his lips sealed.
