The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youth group known as PDP National Youth Frontiers (PDPNYF), has called on ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene in the current leadership crisis rocking the party.
The caretaker committee led by Ahmed Makarfi and the embattled chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff have not been able to make a compromise for the sake of the party, despite holding peace talks.
They also called on the National Judicial Commission (NJC), to probe Justice Okon Abang, following a recent judgement declaring the PDP convention slated to hold in August 2016, illegal.
The PDP youth also alleged that Justice Abang’s judgement goes in favour of the one who has the money to pay.
The National Coordinator of the group, Austin Okai, in a statement said “The judiciary must not be a place were anyone runs into and hide his misdeed, it is now clear that Justice Okon Abang has turn his own arm of judiciary to be a rubber stamp for anyone who can afford the bid.
“We ask all concerned to wave into this judicial rascality exhibited by Justice Okon Abang before it eats deep into the marrows of our democracy. He is not only a threat to democracy but also a threat to human rights and stain to the bench.
“PDP is a family and each time it has internal misunderstanding, the said Justice Okon Abang dives in to set fire on a fresh wood. It is alarming how much interest he picks on matters that concerns the PDP.
“The manner and mode in which judgements are obtained from Justice Okon Abang is an abuse to constitutional rights, cases brought before him are not studied, neither are they carefully listened to. He gives judgement contradicting same judgement from court of the same competent jurisdiction, High court over ruling High court judgement, and to this we find it absurd for an arm as the one he controls finding solace in misinforming the people, it is very unfuturnate. He did the same thing in the Abia state governornorship election case that has placed the duo of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu and Dr. Uchechukwu Ogah in a tight conner.
“He is doing same is on this matter. We totally say no to this act of using his office to stain the country’s judiciary and making it a laughing stock.
“We therefore call on the National Judicial Council to as a matter of urgency remove Justice Okon Abang and further probe his ill judicial rascality and constitutional doctoratings to save our judiciary, as well as our democracy.”
Senator Buruji Kashamu has also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will soon resolve the ongoing crisis rocking the party.
