The All Progressives Grand Alliance has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of fanning the embers of the crisis in the Anambra State House of Assembly where the Speaker, Rita Maduagwu was purportedly impeached.

The crisis culminated in the sealing of the complex by the police for the last two weeks.

APGA alleged that the purpose was to impeach the state governor, Willie Obiano by making the state ungovernable.

Obiano has been so close to the Federal Government in recent times heightening apprehension in some quarters that he might work against the interest of PDP in the state in next year’s elections. His predecessor, Peter Obi is the running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

A source close to the new leadership in the House revealed that the plot to unseat governor Obiano had been perfected and was supposed to commence last Tuesday, November 20, 2018, but was shifted to take place two days later when the house reconvened following the declaration of that Tuesday as a public holiday by the Federal government”.

National Co-ordinator of APGA Media Warriors Forum, Chinedu Obigwe in a statement corroborated our findings as he accused the factional Speaker of the House, Ikem Uzoezie( an APGA member) of romancing the PDP to destabilise the state.

His statement read in part “As of today, we know those funding their rebellion in the House of Assembly and the amount of money spent to buy their conscience.

“The reason why their evil plan to impeach the Speaker failed is because they are not fighting a just battle rather they are doing the bidding of politicians that want to return Anambra to the PDP dark era.

“The aggrieved APGA lawmakers fomenting this trouble with them are on their way to PDP because they lack spirits of good sportsmanship to accept the outcome of the last primary elections.”
