Change the change campaign of PDP has a great price – APC

When they ran the government at the centre, the opposition PDP
showed aptitude in only one thing: the toppling of elected state
governments using the police and secret service under their
control. A five-man legislature met at 6:00 am and “impeached”
Governor Dariye in Plateau; 18 members out of 32 removed
Governor Ladoja of Oyo from office; in Anambra, APGA’s Governor
Obi was equally impeached at 5:00 a.m. by members who did not
meet the two-thirds required by the constitution.
His offence was that he refused to inflate the state’s budget. The
lawmakers had reportedly met with representatives of the
President in Asaba , Delta State and then accompanied to Awka by
heavy security provided by the police Mobile Unit. The PDP
President at that time had reportedly told Obi to forget re-election
in 2007 if he did not join the PDP because he (the President) would
not support a non-PDP member.
In Ekiti, Governor Fayose in his first term faced allegations of
financial corruption and murder. Following the failure to heed the
instruction of the presidency to impeach only Fayose and spare the
deputy, Madam Olujimi, now a senator, the PDP President declared
that there was a breakdown of law and order in the state and
declared a state of emergency. He appointed Brig-Gen. Adetunji
Olurin (rtd) as the sole administrator of the state on October 19,
2006. In an earlier incident in Anambra, it took an insider
collaboration to thwart the unseating of Governor Ngige by a
powerful thug sponsored by the PDP administration. The
parliament at the centre seized the law-making powers of the
Rivers State House of Assembly as a way to save Governor Rotimi
Amaechi, the then chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum from
impeachment by the PDP presidency. Thank God for Buhari, none
of these absurdities has happened under his watch but the PDP is
indicating their boredom with his meticulous observance of the
constitution by calling for a return to the old order.
