THE national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of being behind the impeachment of the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon Monday Igbuya.
According to a statement issued by the acting Deputy National Chairman of the party, Dr Cairo Ojougboh, in Abuja on Thursday, the governor caused the impeachment of the speaker because Igbuya accompanied former Delta state governor, James Ibori to visit Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state.
In the statement signed on his behalf by his personal assistant, B Alli, the party Deputy National Chairman, warned Okowa that his eight-year tenure would not last forever.
The statement read: “The attention of Hon Cairo Ojougboh, the Deputy National Chairman of the PDP have been drawn to the criminal removal of Hon Monday Igbuya as Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Asaba.
“Dr Cairo Ojougboh in a statement issued in Abuja today, 11th May, 2017 has advised Hon Monday Igbuya not to despair that his removal is a victory for his person and the genuine democratic forces in Delta state.
“He also says that Igbuya was removed from office because he accompanied His Excellency, chief James Ibori to visit the governor and good people of Bayelsa State.
“His problem with Gov Okowa started immediately after that visit but we must state that Hon Monday Igbuya has served creditably well and we are proud of his services to the people of Delta State.
“Gov Okowa should be reminded that power belongs to God and that it is transient.
“He should also be reminded that eight years is not forever and therefore, be mindful of how he treats people while in power.
