Politics 2015: PDP’s Dirty Tactics Muzzle APC - Sunday Trust



Mr Osita Okechukwu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) captured the tension in his party thus: “I think the impeachment gale is politically motivated. If you notice, the 20 allegations levelled against Nyako were the same 20 allegations levelled against him in 2008 both in letters and items. And the PDP leadership protected him. So, the question is, if Nyako has remained in the PDP, could he have been impeached? The answer is no. So, that is why I’m saying that it is politically motivated.

“If you go to the one in Nasarawa, you have seen that the people are on the streets which demonstrate his support base. They said he diverted money for SURE-P to train youths. Part of the SURE-P money is meant for youths. They are being trained as apprentices for the advancement of social services. They said the governor did extra-budgetary allocation in 2012. In 2013, they approved the budget of the same governor, containing most of those items in what could have made a supplementary budget in 2012. And they didn’t fight. This does not happen until the APC concluded its National Convention.”

Okechukwu’s position tallies with that of the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun, who condemned the sack of Admiral Nyako. The party’s chairman alleged money politics and arm-twisting.
