A political movement known as PDP National Integrity Group, has urged all members elect of 8th Assembly of Abia House to ensure that the independence of the Abia State House of Assembly is paramount but remains the expectancy of Abians to ensure that the Abia Governor-Elect, Dr. Alex Otti must be held accountable for his Government to guarantee speedy development and good governance in Abia State.
The group in a statement signed by its President, Pastor Chris Ukpai said there are ongoing plot by the governor-elect, who was elected on the platform of the Labour Party, to hijack the 8th Abia House of Assembly and impose a rubber stamp speaker on the lawmakers.
“We have tracked down ongoing attempts to hijack and foist a rubber stamp Abia House of Assembly that will provide Alex Otti access to run Abia State like the way defunct Diamond Bank was handled,” the group said in the statement.
“We have become more concerned about the backstage activities and clandestine networking of political hawks to impose a neophyte and novice as Speaker of 8th Assembly in other to ensure that the Governor-Elect will not have difficulties with consents and approvals of Abia House through his novice Speaker for his intending excessive and outrageous external loans and grants from Chinese and Islamic banking institutions”.
PDP National Integrity Group call on the majority of PDP members Elect to form alliance with YPP and APC members Elect to Elect Elder Erondu Jnr Erondu (Obingwa West) or Emmanuel Emeruwa (Aba South) who remains a PDP member in the Spirit irrespective of winning with Labour Ticket.
“We are aware why Mr Peter Obi’s performance in Anambra was superb was because the then Anambra State of Assembly was controlled by PDP majority with PDP Speaker, this is the beauty of democracy and we expect such scenario in Abia 8th Assembly, Emmanuel Emeruwa or Erondu Jnr is the best option for the position of the Speaker to achieve an independent House of Assembly devoid being Rubber stamp as being galvanized by Alex Otti,” the group concluded.
