"PDP Leaders Urged to Caution Gov Dave Umahi for Ban on Journalists" - Amb. Pascal Oluchukwu

The Chairman and Spoke person of the Association of Ebonyi State Indigenes in the Diaspora, Ambassador Pascal Oluchukwu has urged the leadership of the PDP to caution Ebonyi State Governor, Engineer Dave Umahi, for the unjustifiable ban he placed against some journalists and media organizations from doing their job in the State. In a Press Statement released to Newsmen in Abuja, on April 26, 2020, the unrelenting Social critic and civil rights advocate, called on the National Leadership of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to wade into the undemocratic Practices of the Governor and ensure that his actions, on behalf of the Party, do not undermine its enviable democratic credentials.

Ambassador Pascal was speaking on the disgraceful and most unwarranted ban placed upon two (2) journalists deployed to the Ebonyi Government House to cover government activities for The Punch and The SunNews media houses respectively. Against all entreaties from well meaning public spirited individuals and organizations, the PDP Governor has refused to allow these journalists any access to the Government House where they have a legitimate and constitutionally guaranteed duties to perform on behalf of their organizations. The journalists were being punished not because of their incompetence, but because they have demonstrated independent reasoning and have refused to be corrupted or intimidated on the discharge of their duties.

Ambassador Pascal stated that the Ebonyi Diaspora Association “condemns, in strongest terms, the dictatorial actions of the Governor, who has been ruling the good people of Ebonyi State like a Roman Imperial Proconsul, clearly unaccountable to the democratic tenets that placed him in that position.”

In the circumstances, Ambassador Pascal called on the national leadership of the PDP to rise up to the challenges imposed on its peculiar position to rein in on the Governor and ensure that he remains respectful of democratic norms in leading the government and people of Ebonyi State on its behalf.

He stated that in addition to stopping this undemocratic behavior, “the PDP also needs to caution Governor Dave Umahi against making unguarded and careless utterances capable of undermining the democratic gains of the party in the State.” He cited the example of the gag order issued to the Civil Servants not to speak out against any government policy, however unpopular or risk being fired from their jobs.

The Ebonyi-born activist further stated that for the PDP to safeguard its democratic reputations “ it cannot overlook obvious disrespect for the rule of law and must therefore brings Governor Dave Umahi to book, and caution his approach. You can not halt freedom of speech, or ban Journalists from going about their constitutional rights. If the PDP refuses to caution Governor Umahi, he will mortgage the Ebonyi State to the APC; and we all know what that means for the 2023 general elections", Ambassador Pascal concludes.

N90bn FIRS Election Fund Is Osinbajo's Problem, Not 2023 Politics - Timi Frank

A political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank has said the the ongoing travails of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is allegedly due to corruption which has nothing to do with 2023 politics.
Frank revealed through a statement on Monday in Abuja that he has reliable information from his sources in the presidency to the effect that Osinbajo’s travail has nothing to do with 2023 but alleged mismanagement of about N90 billion Naira released by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to prosecute the last general elections in favour of the APC.
Frank said: “The presidency discovered how Osinbajo allegedly mismanaged N90billion from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
“When confronted by the presidency, he confirmed to General Buhari that he indeed allegedly took N90billion from FIRS but it was used for the 2019 presidential election campaign in strategic states of the South-west.
“Gen Buhari asked for a breakdown of how the money was spent and he said he gave N11 billion to Lagos state APC leader but when the said national leader and one former APC chairman were invited for explanation, it was confirmed that Osinbajo gave only N5billion and not N11billion to Lagos state.
“The cabal is asking to know how come they beat PDP in the South-west with less than 60,000 votes if the money was actually spent in the strategic states of the South-west as allegedly claimed.”
The activist insisted that if the information is true, Osinbajo must resign his position as Vice President, adding that such  is akin to the characteristics of ‘yahoo boys.’
Frank said since the former National Security Adviser, military colonel.Sambo Dasuki is being held on allegations of embezzlement while Osinbajo is also allegedly being accused of embezzlement, “they should be given the same treatment.”
He added: “This goes to confirm the NEMA case against Osinbajo concerning the N5billion that he was alleged to have siphoned. 
“The ball is in Gen Buhari’s court to show Nigerians that he supports corruption from his cabinet members and do nothing or he is indeed truly fighting corruption and therefore force him to resign.
“No wonder the fight against corruption under this administration is not yielding positive results as expected.”
Frank wondered why Osinbajo would always be the first to brand people like Bukola Saraki and ex-President Goodluck Jonathan with corruption “whereas he is the chairman of ‘yahoo yahoo’ in Nigeria.
“How do we expect the ‘yahoo boys’ to change when the VP is their chairman? Nigerians must not feel sorry for Osibanjo as the time to pay for his yahoo yahoo activities has come.  
While calling on Nigerians to ignore the claim that Osinbajo is being witch-hunted by the cabal, Frank said: “If Osinbajo is investigated, Nigerians will be shocked to find more revelation about his activities. 
“If he fails to resign, the National Assembly must begin the process of impeachment against him as a matter of urgency to prove to Nigerians that 9th Assembly is not a rubber stamp of the executive. 
“Finally, I call on Osinbajo to immediately apologise to God for his ‘yahoo yahoo’ behavior and repent otherwise he will be disgraced out of office."
