S/East PDP Communique: The plethora of misleading falsehood -Orji


Ebonyi Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Barr Orji Uche Orji has described the Communique issued by the South East PDP Zonal Working Committee as the plethora of misleading falsehood.

Orji in a statement made available to newsmen, tagged it thus, "the sinister communique of South East PDP Zonal Working Committee and the plethora of misleading falsehood.

He said that the Ebonyi State Ministry of Information and State Orientation has tracked the communiqué credited to South East Zonal Working Committee of PDP dated Saturday 01 May 2021 and authored by One Elochukwu Okereke who purports to be the Zonal Publicity Secretary of PDP.

He added: "We consider this attention seeking communiqué as one of their sinister publications concocted with demeaning and misleading falsehood and calculated to distract the peace loving people of Ebonyi State and reap the gracious attention of the people-oriented administration of the performing Governor of Ebonyi State, His Excellency Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi FNSE, FNATE (Akubaraoha). 

"The content of the publication and the context of their argument unfortunately exposes the inadequacies of the reasoning faculties of their political think-tank and the incompetencies of the present crop of the leadership of South East Zonal Working Committee. 

"The  arguments canvassed in their substantive paragraphs denote a body of political operators who have little or no information about precedents and practice of governance structure and systems in a federal system of government.

"We are deeply disappointed  but not surprised on the failure and inability of the PDP South East Zonal Working Committee to understand and dissect the clear and unambiguous resolutions reached by the South East Governors and stakeholders during their Security Summit of 11th April, 2021 in Owerri, Imo State.

"The 15- point Communiqué of the South East leaders is clear on their resolution for states to maintain a joint security vigilante to be called Ebubeagu Joint Security Network whose coordination and intelligence would be headquartered in Enugu.

"This resolution cannot in any way waive or vitiate the legislative powers of the federating states and the inherent powers of states to recruit or provide the membership of Ebubeagu from among the youths of their respective states, which they are already exercising in  different tempo and stages especially the necessary legislations, the recruitment and the funding processes for Ebubeagu.

"We have also noted the cowardly and untoward accusations by  the PDP elements who are branding the peace loving youths of Ebonyi State as the “militia” just because they enrolled as members of South East Security outfit, Ebubeagu. 

"We want to assure the PDP elements in Ebonyi State who are hiding under the cloak of PDP South East Working Committee to blackmail the State Government that their rejection by the good people of Ebonyi State is unwavering as the current PDP in the State parades a group of people who do not mean well for the State.

"We therefore urge all the stakeholders in our security engagements and indeed all the members of the public to discountenance the PDP's Communiqué of 1st May, 2021 as a worthless distraction, but remain focused in our  collective resolve to secure a peaceful, safe and prosperous state."
