Nnamani, Masari in fresh offensive against OBJ


There appears no end in sight for former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s political travails, as some prominent members of the PDP under the aegis of the G21 have moved to have him removed as chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees [BOT].

There appears no end in sight for former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s political travails, as some prominent members of the PDP under the aegis of the G21 have moved to have him removed as chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees [BOT].

Among the leaders of the new offensive are Senator Ken Nnamani and Aminu Bello Masari, both former Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives when Obasanjo was President.

Other members of the offensive, operating under the aegis of G21 and calling for the removal of Obasanjo as chairman of the Board of Trustees [BOT] of the Peoples Democratic Party include Chief Alani Bankole, Senator Bode Olajumoke, Architect Ibrahim Bunu, Abdullahi Gumel, Esther Audu, Bawa Bwari.

Others include former House of Representatives leader, Abdul Ningi, Fanta Baba Shehu, Senator Abubakar Girei, Senator John Branbaifa, Margaret Icheen, Alhaji Musa Elayo, Senator Musa Adede as well as Leader of the Integrity Group during the Etteh saga, Alhaji Faruk Lawal.
Already they are signatories to a letter addressed to the National Secretary of the PDP giving notice of Proposed Amendment of the PDP Constitution 2006 [As Amended], Pursuant to Articles 12.87[1] and 2 of the PDP Constitution.

The two-page document made available to Sunday Sun is proposing that all amendments adopted by the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] outside the its 1998 constitution should be deleted.
In its place, all articles deleted from the 1998 constitution of the party, by the proposal should be added as well as adopting the 1998 defunct constitution as the party’s constitution.
“All amendment introduced in the 2006 constitution were made to strengthen the internal democracy of the party, but self serving,” the letter noted.

Although the document did not explicitly mention names but should the group’s proposal sail through, then former President Obasanjo would have lost his seat as BOT chairman of the PDP.
The proposal is expected to form part of the agenda for discussion at the national convention of the party, but as at the time of this report no definite date had been fixed for the convention.
The party is, however, expected to announce a date for the national convention after its National Executive Committee [NEC] meeting tomorrow.

It will be recalled that the party’s convention had been shifted twice due to the party’s inability to meet the requirements of the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] as set by the Electoral Act.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
