Instead Of You To Show Remorse You Decided To Choose Targets Like Me – Anyim Blasts PDP
The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Pius Anyim has on Friday expressed his disappointment with the action of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naija News recalls that Anyim alongside three others were suspended by the PDP for alleged anti-party activities.
Reacting to the suspension via a statement made available to Naija News on Friday, the former Senate President described the move as an act of cowardice.
He argued that the NWC should be blamed for the party’s poor performance in the just concluded general elections.
Anyim insisted that it was unbecoming for the NWC to still have it’s head held high despite the party’s collosal loss.
According to him: “It smacks of arrogance for the NWC to put up a bold face instead of showing remorse and being sober for leading the party to such a colossal loss in the 2023 general elections, thereby dashing the hopes and expectations of party members and indeed Nigerians.
“It is clear that arising from the leadership style of the NWC, many members, intentionally and proudly, worked against the party including members of the NWC. Therefore, it is a display of innate cowardice for NWC to choose soft targets to suspend and fear those that daily demonise them.”
He went on to condemn the NWC for not dialoguing with suspended members and offering a fair hearing before carrying out the act.
Anyim, noted that the party’s leadership, led by Iyorchia Ayu, imposed a governorship candidate, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, on the party members in Ebonyi State.
“In the case of Ebonyi State, the NWC imposed a candidate from the sitting governor’s zone, contrary to the zoning formula in the state. Every effort to let the NWC see reason fell on deaf ears,” he stated.
Anyim said that he is proud to have supported the APC gubernatorial candidate in Ebonyi State to win the election, “because that conforms to the equitable formula in Ebonyi State.”
He subsequently called on the leadership of the party to reverse the suspension.
