Ex-Speaker dumps PDP, joins APC 78941046 pdp apc clash 696x459 300x198

Godfrey Dikeocha, a former Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

 

He stated this after he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the PDP, hailing President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-graft policy.

Dikeocha, an erstwhile stalwart of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) confirmed his departure from the PDP at his home in Ndigbo Uvuru, Aboh Mbaise Local Government when leaders of APC visited him on Thursday.

According to him, “I believe in the anti-corruption principles of Mr. President, and he is fighting it no matter the pitfalls. Despite the misgiving in the Southeast, Mr. President has started doing visible projects for the region.

“Even in PDP days, we orchestrated the 2nd Niger Bridge that never took off, but today something is going on in the place, including renovation work going on in Akanu Ibiam International Airport.

“Southeasterners of PDP extraction were ministers and they did nothing to upgrade the airport, but the President is doing wonderful work there despite not getting votes from the region.”

Amotekun: Akeredolu reveals ‘major’ agreements Southwest governors reached with Osinbajo

Amotekun: Akeredolu reveals ‘major’ agreements Southwest governors reached with Osinbajo 20200124 093655

The Ondo State Governor and Chairman of the Southwest Governors, Rotimi Akeredolu, has disclosed what was agreed upon during the meeting with the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo with regards to Amotekun.

Akeredolu said governors of the region and Osinbajo agreed on a legal framework to be established to backup the region’s security outfit.

Recall that the Southwest governors had met with Osinbajo yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting is coming 24 hours after the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, said Amotekun was not a threat to national unity.

Amotekun, an initiative of Southwest Governors, was first declared illegal last Tuesday by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami

However, Akeredolu while addressing State House correspondents after the meeting, said: “We held a very fruitful discussion, the governors of the South-West were there. The meeting was presided over by the Vice President, the AGF was there and the Inspector General of Police.

“We have rubbed minds and all of us have agreed on the way forward. The most important thing is that we are going to have the legal framework to back this Amotekun. And this legal framework is going to be one in which all of us will look at and we will be sure that it goes without any hindrance.”

When asked if the agreement reached with the Vice President meant that the establishment of the outfit would be put on hold until the legal framework was developed, he said: “No. What I believe about our resolution is that Amotekan is there, you know the Federal Government is starting community policing. In essence really, it is about community. So, we are going to work together to see the community policing and Amotekan work in a way.”

Akeredolu also insisted that there were consultations before the establishment of Amotekun

“There were consultations, don’t say there were no consultations. There were consultations because we held discussions with the IG then and what has developed is what has led to this, not that there were no consultations.

“We just felt that with all these noise outside, it was better for us to sit down. Remember that immediately the noise started, I said that we were going to explore political solutions and all of us are here, my colleague, the deputy governor of Oyo State who is of the PDP, all of us are here. So, we have looked at both political and legal solutions to it and all of us will do it,” he said.
