Abia Government Seals PDP Secretariat
Officials of the Umuahia Capital Development Authority (UCDA) have reportedly shut the Abia State Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at 45 Finbers Road, Umuahia.
The Secretariat was sealed by the officials on Wednesday, though no reason was given for the development.
According to reports, a notice on the building advised the occupants to visit UCDA’s office at 51 Ogurube layout, Umuahia for more details.
Meanwhile, the Abia State chapter of the PDP has called for the swearing-in of Aaron Uzodike of the PDP, as a member representing Aba North constituency in Abia State.
The party in a statement signed by Abraham Amah, the party’s Vice Chairman/Acting Publicity Secretary, expressed worry that the Aba North constituency is still without a lawmaker representing them in the Abia State House of Assembly despite the fact that the Appeal Court had declared Aaron Uzodike as the winner of the March 18 election and removed Destiny Nwagwu of the LP.
Amah described the situation as impunity.
“It is common knowledge that the only document required by the Speaker to swear in a member into the House of Assembly is the Certificate of Return which was issued to Hon. Aaron Uzodike by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, a few days after the Court judgment and thus made him the duly and validly elected member of the Abia State House of Assembly to represent the good people of Aba North.
“Why has the Speaker refused to swear him in?” Amah asked.
