The attention of All Progressive Ground Alliance has been drawn to areckless comment credited to the Special Adviser to the President of the Federal Government of Nigeria on Political Matters calling for the impeachment of the duly elected governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha.
Finally, the statement credited to Ikedi Ohakim and others that they have the backing of the Presidency to remove Governor Okorocha has been further strengthened by Ahmed Gulak’s widely reported statement.
It should also be noted that the State PDP Chairman had earlier revealed that Ikedi Ohakim and others declared that they contributed N25 billion to the PDP for the Presidential campaign. The PDP official also boasted to have used their connections within the presidency to influence the police to assist the former chairmen to invade and take over the LGA’s by force.
Imolites hereby call on President Goodluck Jonathan to call Ahmed Gulak to order and sanction him for bringing the office of President into disrepute if indeed he is not playing out a script authored within the presidency.
For the avoidance of doubt, the former local government chairmen had sought but failed to get term elongation through a high court in Imo State. The process was purely a judicial matter. Governor Okorocha had in obedience to a court order recalled the chairmen before their terms expired on August 8, 2012. As a high government official Ahmed Gulak should guard his comments and utterances.
