PDP lists impeachable offences by Willie Obiano, Calls Assembly to do the needful

The Peoples’ Democrat­ic Party (PDP) Anambra State chap­ter yesterday raised some impeachable offences the All Progres­sives Grand Alliance (APGA) government led by Governor Willie Obi­ano has committed in office and called on the state House of Assem­bly to do the needful.

The call was made by Chief Ken Emeakayi during a special PDP conference at Awka on Sunday.

Emeakayi said: ‘’The governor is aware that he is violating the con­stitu-tion by not con­ducting council polls in Anambra. We are only reminding him of the need for him to obey the con-stitu­tion. The constitution is sacrosanct. The con­stitution provides for the running of the lo­cal government system through elected chair­men and councilors.

“Obiano cannot change it. He is claim­ing that there is an amended lo-cal govern­ment law in Anambra State which empowers him to appoint tran-sition committee, but we are telling him that the constitution is very clear on that. When any law is inconsistent with the constitution, that law, to ex-tent of that inconsistency, shall re-main void.

‘’Again, the Speak­er of the House of Rep­resentatives has said it that any governor who is operating transition committee or what­ever name it is called, outside elected repre­senta-tives, is breach­ing the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

We are reliably in­formed that Gov Wil­lie Obiano is planning to appoint members of APGA in Anambra into transition com­mittee. We have writ­ten to the appropriate authority because it is totally unacceptable and we shall do every­thing within the con­fine of the law to stop him.

On why PDP has failed to regain power despite efforts put in so far, Emeakayi said, ‘’For the period you are talking about, stake­holders of PDP in the state, due to greed and avarice, have contin­ued to mortgage what belongs to our party. Because of this reason, APGA in Anambra has been operating under the franchise of PDP. The reason APGA has been winning the state is that the party has been playing on the whim of PDP.
