S’East pro-Buhari group dissociates from ultimatum to APC over Okorocha
By Steve Oko
The South East leadership of a major support group for President Muhammadu Buhari known as Presidential Support Committee, PSC, has distanced itself from the purported ultimatum issued by some members of the group against the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole over his suspension of Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State.
Zonal Coordinator and Chairman of the Presidential Support Committee PSC, Chermberline Adiaso, dissociated the committee from the recent 48 -hour ultimatum given to the APC National Working Committee by some members of the PSC to lift the suspension on Okorocha and his Ogun state counterpart, Ibikunle Amosun.
APC NWC had suspended the due over alleged anti-party activities.
But in a swift response, Adiaso said the group had no qualms with the national leadership of APC over its decision.
Addressing newsmen in Umuahia, the Abia state Capital, Adiaso dismissed those who issued the purported ultimatum as attention seekers, arguing that any meeting of PSC in the zone held without his knowledge is of no moment.
Adiaso also dismissed the press briefing held in Owerri by those he described as “some cheap people in the committee”.
“Any meeting held behind him was null and void,” he said.
The PSC Zonal Coordinator maintained the APC was a disciplined party and has the NWC as the highest decision making body of the party adding that anyone who questions the authority of the NWC was also questioning the powers of President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader of the APC.
PSC led by the Director of Inter-Party Affairs, South East; Robert Ngwu, National Legal Adviser; Ejikeme Ugwu and Director, Political Matters; Comrade Maxwel Okoye At a press briefing in Owerri on Tuesday condemned the suspension of Okorocha, saying the act was done by a cabal and was a ploy to disorganise Ndigbo ahead of the 2023 presidential election believed to be the turn of the zone to produce a president.
Adiaso also commended Ndi Igbo for voting for Buhari in the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections and assuaged fears that the president was planning to militarize the zone during the march 9th election as he called on Abians and Igbos in general to vote the right people into positions of authority for democracy to thrive in Nigeria.
