SUPREME COURT’S AFFIRMATION OF BUNI’S CECPC LEADERSHIP VALIDATES MY EARLIER POSITION, PORTENDS GOOD FORTUNE FOR NIGERIA’S DEMOCRACY – EZE …ABE’S LATEST PLOT, EVIDENCE OF A DESPERATE DROWNING MAN AS AMAECHI’S LEADERSHIP OF RIVERS APC NOT QUESTIONABLE.
Following the Supreme Court affirmation of the Mai Buni-led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress, erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New. People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has expressed excitement, noting that the position of the apex Court validates his earlier stand on the controversy generated over the legality or otherwise of the Buni led team.
In a statement made available to media houses in Port Harcourt, the APC chieftain said those controverting and subjecting the Buni-led committee to quibbles are merely conscripted to execute a devious stratagem in pursuit of some selfish, private vendettas.
“In my first reaction on the confusion engineered over the outcome of the Supreme Court Judgement on the Ondo gubernatorial election questioning the legality or otherwise of the Governor Buni led leadership of APC, I encouraged Nigerians not to be dismayed over the issue, as some of the elements spearheading the poor propaganda were pursuing a hidden stand which only a handful of us that work in the spirit can easily fathom”.
Recall that the party chief who had been confined to hospital bed had offered clarifications over the issue, throwing his weight behind the Buni-led team and urging Nigerians to disregard the deceptive interpretation of the unambiguous judgement of the apex Court by those he described as mischief makers and political desperados, working to throw the party into confusion with the unclean motive of advancing their political territory.
“For avoidance of doubt and with hindsight, I commended the party leadership from my sickbed for ignoring the careless misstatements of political desperados who are plotting to plunge the party into crisis in a bid to frustrate and make nonsense the efforts of the Buni’s committee in restoring sanity and repositioning the party for better electoral results.”
Eze highlighted that the efforts of the misinterpreters promoting the trending bad blood, are aimed at nothing but the resuscitation of the dead National Working Committee of Adams Oshiomhole, which image had been battered irredeemably and would worth noting in this dispensation considering the seriousness of the times. “This plot is dead on arrival”
Eze expressed delight that when the detailed judgement of the Supreme Court was made public on August 5, 2021, it was in consonance with the opinion he offered on the matter.
“The Supreme Court vindicated my stand by affirming that the leadership of Governor Mai Mala Buni as Chairman, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is legal and lawful” the party chief stated.
The apex court also held that Mai Mala Buni’s position as Acting Chairman of the Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee is not contrary to the provision of Section 183 of the CFRN as same is on a temporary basis which is not akin to Executive office or paid employment as envisaged by Section 183 of the CFRN.
“That sponsorship of a candidate in an election is that of the party and not the individual Officer of the party forwarding the name of the candidate.”
“On the strength of all the above position of the Supreme Court in the instant case and other earlier decided cases cited in support, it is our opinion that the Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) headed by Governor Mai Mala Buni is on firm ground to proceed with its mandate as given by the National Executive Committee of the APC.” The Court affirmed.
In another development, notwithstanding his health status, Chief Eze, lampooned Senator Magnus Abe and his compadres for their cowardice, especially their refusal to participate in the Ward Congress of the party.
“Watching the macabre dance of Senator Magnus Abe and his Team of funny politicians who are afraid to contest a competitive election, but always looking for those with whom to share elective offices, one will quickly conclude that Abe is no longer dancing according to the rhythms of the music of the time.”
With the observation by the APC National Officer sent to Rivers State to sell forms to Abe and his funny group, it is crystal clear now than ever that Abe and his friends are hired to frustrate the Rivers State chapter of the APC.
Abe’s prejudiced hostility and unjustified animosity towards Amaechi, who made him whatever he is politically, has blinded his conscience so much so that the former Senator has firmly resolved and solemnly vowed never to toe the path of soundness and reasonableness in the business of politics, and posterity will not be kind to him.
Eze assured that the good God who fights and brings victory to the just has already taken over the battles of the Rivers State APC and will keep the party intact while frustrating and bringing to naught, the satanic machinations of Abe and his cohorts.
The party chief highlighted that it is a pure misnomer and an unforgivable anathema for anyone to continue to accord the makeshift and confused group of Abe the status of a faction within the Rivers APC, as no such thing still exists.
He maintained that the Rivers APC is one and intact under the watch of the Transportation Minister, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi.
