Minister of Housing, Ama Pepple Was Sacked Because She Pleaded For Amaechi – ‘New’ PDP
Last week’s sack of nine ministers by President Goodluck Jonathan did not come to many as a surprise. As a matter of fact, the sack has been rumoured days before it finally came, especially considering that some of the ministers where the nominations of the rebellious governors who have since formed a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
What however came as a shocker was the sack of the minister of housing, Mr Ama Pepple. She is not known to have been nominated by any of the rebellious governor, neither is she linked to any of them.
But the Abubakar Baraje-led New Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has indicated that the sack of Ama Pepple was borne out of the fact that she interceded for Governor Rotimi Amaechi and not because they are have not performed.
The New PDP in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, alleged that those Ministers were victimized for no just cause.
“The truth of the matter is that these innocent Ministers were sacked because they were either nominated by us or sympathetic to our cause”, he said.
Eze said his faction was aware that the ex-Ministers had been under surveillance and denied the necessary tools to work with. “In short, they were programmed to fail immediately they were identified with us”, he added.
“Sadly, these innocent Ministers have been sacked while the most corrupt Ministers whose atrocious activities are well known to Nigerians, are retained.
He went on to state that,“The most pitiable case of these sacked Ministers is that of our mother, the Minister of Housing, Mrs. Amal Pepple, whose crime was that she approached Mr. President, pleading with him, even kneeling down to beg him to forgive Gov. Amaechi for whatever sins he is assumed to have committed against him.”
“We wish to assure these victimized Ministers that their travails are temporary. They have nothing to be ashamed of; their fate is in the hands of God and their future is very bright.
“Therefore, rather than being sad, they should count themselves lucky for being part of the struggle to salvage our party and country from the hands of opportunists who are using a political party which they do not know how it was formed to torment and haunt the founders of the party and their supporters,” the statement concluded.
