If Amaechi Cannot Respect Jonathan, PDP Leadership, He Is Free To Leave – Presidency

Published

on

Amaechi-GEJThe Presidency on Friday advised embattled Rivers State Governor, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, to resign from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), if he was no longer ready to respect the President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and the leadership of the party.

The call came on the heels of a meeting of PDP leaders in Rivers State led by Minister of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, and a former governor of the state, Dr. Peter Odili, with President Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, where they tabled the governor’s alleged infractions.

At the meeting, Mr. Jonathan reportedly said the new PDP would no longer condone acts of indiscipline or disregard for party rules by public officers elected on its platform.

The Presidency, which made its position known by Dr. Ahmed Gulak, Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, advised the governor to leave the party voluntarily.

He said, “Discipline of party members lies with the party leadership at the national level. If the state chapter is complaining of anti-party activities by the governor, they will make such known to the National Working Committee.

“Of course, you would recall that the state chapter had forwarded a petition on the governor to the national leadership of the party and based on that, the NWC suspended him.

“So the President was right by stressing at the meeting that there would no longer be room for indiscipline in the party.

“It is expected that party members, no matter how highly placed, should abide by the rules and regulations of the party.

“Anybody who is not ready to abide by party rules can go to anywhere he wants to go. Anybody who does not believe in party supremacy can look elsewhere where his excesses may be tolerated.

“From the President to councillors on the platform of the party, the PDP expects a high level of discipline, loyalty and respect for the party and its leader from them.”

Muhammadu Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
