Amaechi, Atiku & Others Will Not Return To PDP – Eze Chukwuemeka



Last Saturday in Owerri while addressing a PDP Grand Rally, President Goodluck Jonathan gave an ultimatum to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Governors Rabiu Kwankwanso (Kano), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Aliyu Wamako (Sokoto) and Murtala Nyako (Adamawa) asking them to return to the People’s Democratic Party or risk losing their seniority in the ruling party

While reacting to the ultimatum, the spokesperson of the now defunct new PDP (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has said there is no chance the defected members will return to the PDP

“With due respect, President Jonathan is simply playing to the gallery. For the avoidance of doubt, Atiku, Amaechi and the other patriots who left the sinking and undemocratic PDP have no intention of returning to the party, either now or in the future. They are happy in APC, so Mr.President can keep his seniority as Atiku and the rest do not need it. Only a mad fellow will run away from a sinking ship and run back to such a ship” 

Eze revealed that the members who decamped were never treated as Senior members of the PDP but they were rather humiliated:

“If we may ask, what seniority is President Jonathan talking about after having ensured that Atiku, a former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, was never invited to any BoT and NEC meeting of PDP? Which seniority is he to lose having since been denied all his rights as enshrined in the Constitution of PDP? What type of seniority would Amaechi, Kwankwaso, Nyako, Wamakko and others be seeking in a political party that did everything humanly possible to humiliate them, even taking the state PDP structures from

He said the President’s ultimatum was meaningless and urged him to allow the politicians to continue with their rescue mission with their new party:

 “Having left PDP for good, Atiku, Amaechi and others are on a rescue mission to salvage our nation from the sorrowful state to which it has been subjected by the administration of President Jonathan. They should be allowed to concentrate on this divine mission  and not be disturbed with calls that do not make any meaning.”

Eze also criticized President Jonathan’s visit to Owerri visit at a time the country is experiencing crises in some Northern states

“Jonathan is going about receiving expired politicians back into the PDP without commissioning any projects. It simply demonstrates that this administration is bereft of ideas and vision on how to save this country from its present comatose state.”
