Chairman of the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State, Bro. Felix Obuah, has again
advised the main opposition party in the state, the All Progressives Congress
(APC), to respect the rule of law by obeying court orders.
Bro. Obuah, in a statement issued this afternoon in Port Harcourt, said that obedience to court orders remains intrinsic in democracy. Any political party that is averse to this fundamental tenet of democracy does not worth existing, he said.
Obuah, who was reacting to APC’s statement accusing PDP of being behind court orders stopping its Rivers State congresses, advised the party to put its house in order and stop ‘groping for external enemies’.
He maintained that the biggest problem with APC is what he called “a penchant for disrespecting the rule of law and disobeying court orders”, stressing that the earlier the party realises this and turns a new leaf, the better it would be for it.
“APC,” according to him, “is in crisis because it was built on a faulty foundation and those who formed APC are incompatible elements. They are nothing but strange bed fellows living in delusion hoping for some magic to make things work in the party.
“This explains why they see all their failures and incompetence, as the handiwork of imaginary enemies. The day they realise that democracy is anchored on respect for the rule of law and obedience to court orders, they would make a head start and enjoy the support of Nigerians. Anything short of this is living in a fool’s paradise!”
To this end, Bro. Obuah advised the APC to shun blame game and leave PDP alone, noting that the administration of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike “is too focused on implementing his people oriented developmental programmes than to bother with a group of individuals whose sole objective is to deceive Rivers people for their selfish interest.”
