Chairman of Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Ken Emeakayi, has called on the State House of Assembly to impeach Governor Willie Obiano for what it described as his constitutional breaches.

According to the party, the Governor embarked on a 30 days journey abroad without transmitting a letter to that effect to the State House of Assembly as required by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It urged the House to commence impeachment process on Obiano for violating the constitution he swore to uphold.

The party noted that the Governor on his return from the overseas trip also failed to transmit a letter to the House upon his return, adding that the development has made the Obiano unfit to continue as the Governor of the state.

Emeakayi said: “We have written to the Police, DSS and other security agencies in the country to let them know that the Governor is now acting illegally.

“We have duly notified the State House of Assembly in a separate letter and we are calling on them to immediately commence impeachment proceedings on the Governor because his offence is very clear,

“Obiano had on the 5th of January, at the peak of the yuletide travelled to the US, without transmitting a letter to the House of Assembly, and stayed 30 days without his deputy acting as governor and as such not fit to continue with the task upon return. He is no longer the governor of this state by this breach.”

PDP further reeled out Obiano’s other offences to include the non conduct of local government elections in the state as required by section seven of the constitution saying that it was also a constitutional offence for impeachment.

The party observed that there were plans by the Governor to appoint caretaker committee leadership into the Local Government councils, instead of holding elections to democratise that tier of government.

Reacting to the PDP threat, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Strategic Communication and Legislative Matters, Prince Oliver Okpala, described PDP’s allegations as laughable.

In his words, “The present development and allegations are laughable because the person making the allegation has a case of locus standi in law to decide if he is a fit and proper person to speak on behalf of the PDP as the Chairman in Anambra State judging from the recent political developments in his party.

“Is he the fit and proper person to speak or write any letter to the State Assembly as State Chairman of the party? Which side of the party does he belong, the Markafi faction or the Ali Modu Sheriff faction?

“Also we may know, if all the legal actions instituted by other party members challenging his position as Chairman have been resolved?

“These are fundamental issues to be resolved first before we can know who is making the allegations against the Governor, which party he represents and in which position he is speaking or writing because you know that the Markafi faction of the PDP has rejected the Court of Appeal judgement and has gone to challenge it at the Supreme Court.”

Okpala added that until all the legal issues are resolved, the position and authenticity of the allegations may not attract the attention of any legitimate organ of government.
