‘New PDP’ Vows To Fight On, Says Only Supreme Court Can Stop Them
Unperturbed by the High Court judgment ordering it from parading itself as the national officers of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Baraje faction of the party has vowed to fight on stating that only the Supreme Court can stop it from pursuing the legitimacy of producing the authentic leaders of the PDP.
The splinter group also called the PDP’s bluff by insisting that it would not desist from using the party’s flag, logo and name, because it had the bona fide members of the party.
The mainstream PDP led by Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, warned Baraje’s group to desist from using its name, logo and flag following the court ruling. It threatened that any unauthorised use of the party’s name by the faction would be criminalised.
But in a reaction to the court verdict and the threat of the Bamanga led leadership of the party, spokesman of the Baraje faction, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze said, “We hereby reiterate that we will see this issue to a logical conclusion, including going to the Supreme Court, if necessary, to ensure that a non-member of our party does not continue to lord it over us as our national chairman.
“Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and his loyalists should, therefore, not celebrate yet, as any such celebration would be short-lived, as we are more than ever determined to show him the way out of the exalted position he is illegally occupying.
“We, meanwhile, insist that we have every right to continue using the PDP flag, symbol and colours, as we are the bona fide members of the party and thus entitled to use them.”
The group also called on the federal government to direct relevant security agencies to investigate a purported plot to kidnap the governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, with a view to compelling him to sign his resignation letter.
Reacting to a report in a national daily, which claimed that some politicians in the state were hatching a plot to kidnap the governor, the “New PDP” warned that any attempt to execute the plot would be an invitation to anarchy.
