PDP calls for impeachment of Obiano over constitutional breaches

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State has petitioned the State House of Aseembly, asking it to impeach Governor Willie Obiano.

State chairman of PDP, Prince Ken Emeakayi disclosed this to newsmen in Awka, Anambra state on Monday.

Emekayi said Obiano recently traveled abroad and spent 30 days without informing the House of Assembly.

The PDP said the governor also did not bother to transmit to the House of his return.

Emeakayi said, “We have written to the police, DSS and other security agencies in the country to let them know that the governor is now acting illegally.
“We have duly notified the state House of Assembly in separate letters and we are calling on them to immediately commence impeachment proceedings on the governor because his offence is very clear.
“Obiano had in January, at the peak of the yuletide travelled to the US, without transmitting a letter to the House of Assembly, and stayed 30 days without hisdeputy acting as governor and as such not fit to continue with the task upon return. He is no longer the governor of this by this breach.”
The PDP also said Obiano’s refusal to hold Local Government elections was a breach of the constitution.
Reacting,  the  Senior Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Media, Strategic Communication and Legislative Matters, Prince Oliver Okpala described PDP’s allegation as laughable.
He said, “The present development and allegations are laughable because the person making the allegation has a case of locus standi in law to decide if he is a fit and proper person to speak on behalf of the PDP as the Chairman in  Anambra State judging from the recent political developments in his party.
“Is he the fit and proper person to speak or write any letter to the State Assembly as State Chairman of the party? Which side of the party does he belongs to, the Markafi faction or the Ali Modu Sheriff faction?
“Also may we know if  all the legal actions instituted by other party members challenging his position as Chairman  have been resolved?
“These are fundamental issues to be resolved first before we can know who is making the allegations against the Governor; which party he represents and in which  position he is speaking  or writing  because you know that the Markafi faction of the PDP has rejected the Court of Appeal judgement and has gone to challenge it at the Supreme Court; not until these legal issues are resolved,  the position and authenticity of the allegations may not attract the attention of any legitimate organ of government.”
