You Can’t Stop Us From Protesting – PDP Dares Uzodinma

The Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said Governor Hope Uzodinma has no power to stop them from protesting against the injustices against them.
The party said it would continue to protest over the outcome of the Supreme Court judgment which removed Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of the state.

Governor Hope Uzodinma had last week said he would no longer tolerate any form of protest capable of inciting the people of the state.

But, in a statement issued after the party’s stakeholders meeting in Owerri, the party said it would also, “continue to employ every legal means available to the party to make sure that the unjust judgement given against the party, Governor Emeka Ihedioha and his Deputy Hon. Gerald Irona  by the Supreme Court  of Nigeria is reviewed and reversed.”
The statement signed by the party’s publicity secretary, Damian Oparah, added, “the party shall keep on demostrating/protesting within  the Constitutional right  of her members , to peacefully and publicly  show our support to  Governor Emeka Ihedioha,  his Deputy, Hon. Gerald Irona  and our unacceptable tendencies towards the Supreme Court Judgement that ousted Governor Emeka Ihedioha and his Deputy, Hon. Gerald Irona.”
On the recent decamping of some lawmakers and chieftains of the party to other parties, the party said, their action was of no consequences  to the popularity of PDP and her teaming supporters in the state.
The party said it would however employ all legal options to recover the seats of all the elected members who left the party.

The statement said: “The Party in Imo State shall in conjunction with the National organs of the  party  employ all legal  options to recover their seats in the House of Assembly, as the National Secretariate had already declared their seats vacant.

“The Stakeholders finally urged all PDP members to remain faithful in the Party and  leave  all those who have left the party as there are better future in PDP  for them than elsewhere, since what the Party is facing  now in Imo State is  a temporal set back.”
