Subjecting Anti-SARS Agitation to Political Interpretation is Jejune Partisan Stimulus By Chris Okotie

Chairman Mao once posited that if the people no longer fear your power, it is because another power is on its way....

Following an Appeal Court Judgement delivered on Tuesday night, which upheld the suspension of former Edo Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, as the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, the former spokesman of the defunct new People’s Democratic Party (nPDP) has thrown his weight behind Mr Victor Giadom, a former Rivers’ Commissioner of Works, who recently declared himself the acting chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr Eze, who is one of the most visible members of the All Progressives’ Congress in Rivers state, described the judgement as a good recipe for peace in the ruling party which has been enmeshed in a litany of internal hostilities. He dismissed insinuations that Abiola Ajimobi has statutory powers to administer the party as the next highest ranking officer from the South, stressing that all actions implemented by Mr Oshiomhole including the appointment of Mr Ajimobi, have been nullified by the court’s judgement.

He said Chief Giadom, as the next highest ranking member of the NWC from the South-South Zone, in compliance with the court’s ruling assumes duties as Acting National Chairman of All Progressives Congress. “Any other person parading himself as Acting National Chairman is doing so at his peril and should be regarded as an agent of destabilisation,” Eze said.

Mr Eze congratulated the Court for its sound judgement which ousted Oshiomhole both as National Chairman and as a member of ruling APC, arguing that the former Edo Governor appropriated more powers to himself than the Constitution provides and as a result, pushed the party into a series of internal problems which led to electroal losses in Zamfara, Bauchi, Adamawa, Bayelsa and Rivers and other constituencies across the country. He asked all APC members to support Mr Giadom’s attempts to restructure the political party and also asked Giadom to build consensus among the party faithful.
