The people of Ebonyi South Senatorial District have stated their preparedness to recall the senator representing it at the National Assembly – Chief Sunny Ogbuorji – over his alleged inglorious attitude on Saturday’s South East Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congress in Enugu.
The people numbering over 3,000, who carried placards during a peaceful protest at Government House, Abakaliki, with various inscriptions such as “Sonni Ogbuorji you are a confusionist’’, “Sonni Ogbuorji you have failed PDP in Ebonyi state”, “Ebonyi South Senatorial zone is recalling you Sunny Ogbuorji,” among others, disowned the senator.
Reading a communiqué signed by major stakeholders of the area during the protest, the state Commissioner for Finance Dr. Dennis Ekumankama said: “We condemn, in strong terms, the inglorious attitude, antagonism and disloyalty exhibited by our representatives at the National Assembly, led by Senator Sonni Ogbuorji, during the South East congress of our great party, the Peoples’ Democratic Party, at Michael Okpara Square, Enugu State, on May14, 2016.
“We disassociate ourselves and Edda clan from the inexcusable display of undemocratic tendencies and unwarranted show of shame by the said senator and his group.
“We congratulate His Excellency Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi, for his political sagacity and foresightedness that have won the state the position of National Vice- Chairman, South East zone of the PDP in the person of Chief Austin Umahi.”
