Anambra State Govt calls PDP's impeachment letter "totally ridiculous"


The  Senior Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Media, Strategic Communication and Legislative Matters, Prince Oliver Okpala described PDP’s allegation that the governor travelled abroad and spent 30 days without transmitting a letter to that effect to the state House of  Assembly  as laughable.
He said, “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 belongs to, the Markafi faction or the Ali Modu Sheriff faction?
“Also may we 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; not until these legal issues are resolved,  the position and authenticity of the allegations may not attract the attention of any legitimate organ of government.”
