- Hails Nasawara Chief Judge, probe panel for clearing the governor
By Ehi Ekhator, Naija Center News
The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has call on President Goodluck Jonathan to apologise to the people of Nasarawa State including the state governor, Tanko Al-Makura for attempting to impeach the People’s Governor.
This was contained in a statement by the Rivers State SSS Media and Public Affairs to the State Chairman, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze.
The party hail the Chief Judge of Nasarawa State and the members of the Investigating Panel headed by Yusuf Shehu Usman for clearing the governor of all charges, adding that the action has defeated ”fascism and impunity, stoutly” defending the mandate the people of Nasarawa state freely gave to Governor Al-Makura.
”They have by so doing succeeded in exposing PDP as an evil party that does not mean well for the people of Nasarawa State by investigating and finding the Governor innocent of all the false allegations against him. By so doing, the Chief Judge and members of the Investigating Panel have forestalled the unjust removal of a Governor who has proved that he is out to serve and develop Nasarawa State. They have, by this act, written their names in gold in the history of the political evolution of our nation. ” APC said
The Party added ” We are very pleased by the way and manner the Emirs, Chiefs and people of Nasarawa State defeated fascism and impunity, stoutly defending the mandate they freely gave to their Governor, Alhaji Tanko Al-Makura, when the misguided and demented PDP Leadership in conjuncture with a confused Presidency attempted to impeach the People’s Governor and steal their mandate from the backyard.
APC ”urge the people of Nasarawa State to start without any delay the immediate recall of all lawbreakers who call themselves PDP lawmakers and who orchestrated this failed attempt of stealing the mandate freely given to Governor Al-Makura by the people of Nasarawa State. We also urge them to join other Nigerians to ensure that PDP is adequately punished by denying the party any elective post come 2015.
” The manner in which PDP Leadership went about the impunity that was called the impeachment of Adamawa State Governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako, for standing up and protecting the interests of his people and the militarisation of Ekiti State election simply demonstrates that PDP is desperate to trample on the rights and mandate of the people. This, no doubt, is a rehearsal of what they have in stock for Nigerians in 2015, seeing that the party has been rejected by Nigerians as a result of the hardship it party has brought upon Nigerians particularly by means of the unfortunate administration of President Jonathan.”
