PDP Protest In Abia, Imo Over Fayose's Attack

APC Violated Fayose’s Human Right- PDP

The attack on Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has attracted a protest from PDP members in Abia and Imo State.

NIGERIA NEWS gathered from reports that members of the party in both states took to the streets in protest adding that the Police simply violated the human right of Fayose.

In Imo, the State Chairman of the party, Charles Ezekwem led the march to the Police Headquarters in Owerri.

Ezekwem and fellow protesters handed over a letter to Dauki Galadanchi the commissioner of Police in Imo State which was addressed to the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

The letter reads, “We, the State Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Imo State and the entire Peoples Democratic Party, Imo State observe with dismay the police brutality on the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.

“This violation of human rights is coming just two days to the governorship election in Ekiti.”

“We strongly condemn what is happening in Ekiti State. It was a sad commentary to our democracy that Fayose came out on television and was crying over the r brutality of police and the injuries he sustained from the incident in Ekiti.”

“We therefore plead that you use your good office to ensure that the incident that took place in Ekiti does not repeat itself so as to avoid the total breakdown of law and order in Nigeria. The whole world is watching Nigeria and it will be very bad if democracy fails in our time.”

 In Abia however, members of the PDP also held a protest in the State Capital alleging the police of brutality against Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State and his deputy, Prof. Olusola Eleka, who is the party’s governorship candidate for Saturday’s election.

Being led by the party chairman of the state, Chief Johnson Onuigbo, the attack on Fayose was condemned and they adviced that caution is applied to the Police.

They also gave the police a copy of their protest letter.

Zainab Bagudu

The first lady of Kebbi state, Zainab Bagudu has condemned the former acting Chief Justice of the state, Justice Asabe Saratu for not retiring from her position honourably.

Recall that her husband, governor Atiku Bagudu had sacked Saratu for complaining to the National Judicial Council (NJC) that her appointment was no confirmed by the state house of assembly because she is a Christian.

Zainab, who took to her Facebook page to react to this said although she celebrated her upliftment to the number one legal post in the state, but condemned what she termed her selfish attempt.

“As a female born to parents who both belong to the legal profession, I loudly celebrated the rise of Justice Asabe Karatu as the first female Chief Justice of Kebbi state. More so, I attended the university with her daughter. Now, I totally condemn her selfish attempt to hang on to position instead of retiring honourably.

Zainab who pointed that her allegations have brought about undeserved insults and criticism one her husband, Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu and others, noted that sadly, that is one of the burdens of leadership.

“It is worrisome that as a Nation, we allow religion to quickly divide us rather than use reason to search for reasons to avoid conflict.

“The statement below will not clear every mind, but it is necessary to set the records straight and we owe it to our children to always do what is right. Most of all, We should ALWAYS try to be bigger than our personal ambition. ”

Read the statement below from the state government on the issue.
