New PDP Says Baraje, Oyinlola, Others Won’t Appear Before Dikko Disciplinary C’ttee

MEMBERS OF NEW PDP SUSPENDED BY RULING PARTY

The defiance exhibited by the suspended National Secretary of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola; a former Acting National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Abubakar Baraje; a former  National Deputy Chairman of the party, Dr.  Sam Jaja and PDP former National Vice-Chairman, North West, Ambassador Ibrahim Kazaure, against the leadership of the ruling party continued yesterday as the quartet vowed not to appear before the party’s Disciplinary Committee headed by a former Minister of Transport, Dr.  Umaru Dikko.

They said that even though an invitation was yet to be extended to them by the Umaru Dikko-led Disciplinary Committee, they would not honour such an invitation because the committee was illegal and unknown to the leadership of the party.

The suspended members of the party, who spoke through the National Publicity Secretary of a faction of the party, New PDP, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze, added that they would not confer legitimacy on the committee by gracing it with their appearance.

The statement said, “Our initial reaction was to ignore these reports since the PDP Constitution does not recognise the existence of the so-called Dikko Committee as due process was not followed in its establishment. Besides, the fact that the committee – if at all it exists – did not have the courtesy to directly invite the accused to appear before it strips it of any atom of seriousness.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the New PDP wishes to state unequivocally that neither the aforesaid leaders nor any other New PDP member for that matter will appear before the Dikko Committee either on next week Wednesday, November 27, or at any other date for that matter.

“The committee is an illegality and alien to PDP and its members. It is not our intention to confer legitimacy on such an illegal contraption by self-serving politicians intent on destroying a house the building of which they were not a part.”

Eze added that the committee would only be deemed to be functional when the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party gives it approval, adding that anything short of this would make the performance of the committee null and void.

In other words, he said asking “great personalities such as Baraje, Oyinlola, Jaja and Kazaure to appear before the Dikko Committee was an insult and an attempt to pass through the back door to confer undeserved creditability on this illegal contraption”.

National Broadcast: PDP Slams Buhari Over 'Disappointing, Empty' Speech – PDP

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.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

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.

“It is shocking that security agents and, in some cases, thugs, were reportedly deployed to end the lives of promising Nigerians. This, to say the least, is saddening.

“Those responsible for the heinous murder of the innocent and harmless Nigerians must account for their nefarious acts.

“The PDP calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately direct an end to these wanton killings across our nation.
