Emerging from the just concluded HOS leadership election is a drama that has kept many dumbfounded as a result of the intrigues that preceded it and the final result that is even more intriguing than the process.
The DG of Atikulated Agenda Worldwide, Chief Dr. Emeka C. Kalu has in a Press Statement issued on Wednesday through his Aide on Media/Publicity, Comr. Amos Kalu, berated the PDP Senators for playing the Judas by not keeping to their words as gentlemen whose words should be their bond.
In the statement, Kalu insist that the compromise nature of most PDP members has continued to rob the party of their opposition as opposition, maintaining that only playing the watchdog role can make an opposition party strong, focused and positioned to take what belongs to them at every point in time.
“I have been in shock following the outcome of the election, not necessarily because Lawan Won or Ndume lost, but more because the PDP Senators did not keep to their words even after issuing a Press Statement to announce their decision to adopt Senator Ndume. Yet even Ike Ekweremmadu could not get their winning vote. This is the height of betrayal”. He said.
From the past and the events of the last four years of Buhari’s Administration, it is obvious that the political gamble and fight had been the quest to pocket the 3 arms of the Government in order to have upper hand to practice Dictatorship in a Democratic setting. But the uncompromising nature of Senator Saraki made it impossible for him. As a result, the fight this time was fiercer to place only the rubber stamp men to help complete the circle. One would’ve expected that the Senators would set aside their personal gains and consider the masses because only a strong opposition can keep an ailing government on its toes to deliver.
“Buhari is the head of the Executive, he fought had before the election to overthrow the Judiciary and place his “Boy” as CJN, now he has pocketed the Legislature by ensuring the emergence of stooges. So Democracy has been buried in Nigeria with this next level’ Kalu further argued.
“Our of 102 Senators that were accredited for the election, PDP had 49 Senators, but the winner came out with a winning margin of 71 which means that 80% of the PDP Senators voted for APC, what a betrayal? What was the essence of their open endorsement? No wonder they insisted on secret ballot system of voting.
“The same way most of them have abandoned Atiku in his fight to reclaim his mandate. What a compromise?” He queried.
Kalu also pointed out that the reason why he will continue to support Atiku till he emerge the President of Nigeria is because a lot of things need to be changed before Nigeria can move forward; citing the fact that Buhari has succeeded in Fulanizing/Islamizing Nigeria without a single shot fired.
“When Obasanjo talked about Buhari’s Fulanization Agenda for Nigeria, the Presidency waved it aside. Now he has made it abundantly clear to all and sundry that he has no apology for killing the Federal Character arrangement of Nigeria.
“But I have not given up hope that Atiku will take over because we need a man that will understand that the progress of Nigeria relies in carrying every Nigeria along because only collective effort can guarantee maximum output”.
