Kogi: PDP Calls Onoja’s Inauguration A Nullity, Atrocious


Press Statement

Kogi: Onoja’s Inauguration a Nullity, Atrocious – PDP
…Urges CJN To Impose Sanctions

The
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) dismisses the inauguration of a shadow
deputy governor in Kogi state as a complete nullity, which has no place
under our laws.

The party describes as scandalous to our judicial
system, that the Chief Judge of Kogi state, Justice Nasir Ajana, whose
panel acquitted the state deputy governor, Elder Simon Achuba, of any
misconduct, suddenly flipped to conform with an odious plot by desperate
Governor Yahaya Bello to forcefully remove the deputy governor.

The
action of the Kogi Chief Judge has heavily jeopardized the integrity of
the judiciary and capable of bringing the institution to public
disrepute if not immediately checked.

Our party insists that the
Chief Judge of Kogi state, in staging an illegal inauguration of Edward
Onoja, as a deputy governor, while the office has not become
constitutionally vacant, amounts to gross misconduct, which cannot be
accommodated under our laws.

The PDP alerts that this is a clear
demonstration of the reprehensible and sacrilegious design by Governor
Yahaya Bello to entangle, drag down and corrupt the institution of the
judiciary, cause a constitutional crisis, trigger mayhem and derail the
smooth conduct of the November 16 governorship election in the state.

This
is because there is no way there can be two deputy governors in the
same state, more so as the people of Kogi state had already registered
their anger and resentment against this illegality in the public space.

The
party therefore calls on the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice
Mohammed Tanko, to take immediate steps to save Kogi State from a plunge
into anarchy and chaos.

Nigeria is a nation governed by law and
nobody must be allowed to set aside our constitution and corrupt our
democratic order for his or her selfish and repressive agenda.
