The Alhaji Baraje led-PDP has called on the presidency to recall Senator Joy Emordi who was sacked as Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters because of her candid advice that inducing members of the National Assembly financially to impeach their principal officers would be counter-productive.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze stated this on Sunday, 22 September 2013.
“If this is true, we hereby demand her immediate reinstatement. For Senator Emordi to be bold enough to tell Mr. President the implication of such a corrupt inducement of the lawmakers should earn her commendation rather than a sack. Instead of sacking such a forthright and patriotic Amazon, the President should sack those hawks around him planning to ridicule him by encouraging him to embark on acts capable of making him very unpopular amongst his supporters and followers”.
The statement also called for Princess Stella Oduathe to be sacked.
“Mr. President, if it is true that the Aviation Minister, Princess Stella Odua, has abandoned the remodeling of the Port Harcourt International Airport while completing those started at the same time because of the assumed conflict between you and your brother, Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State, we demand her immediate sack before she causes further damage to your administration.
“We plead with you, Mr. President, not to embark upon any further act or impunity that will endanger the peace and unity of our troubled nation”, the nPDP appealed.
