The Kwara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is seeking the intervention of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) to resolve the crisis rocking the State House of Assembly.
The state chairman of the PDP, Engr. Kola Shittu, who addressed a press conference on Sunday appealed to NGF to compel the state governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, to follow democratic norms and values in resolving the imbroglio.
According to Shittu, the state house of assembly has allegedly refused to allow winner of the Court of Appeal judgement and the PDP lawmaker, Abdulraheem Agboola, into the Assembly for swearing in and documentation even after he (Agboola) was declared winner of the election.
Shittu further described the refusal of the state house of Assembly to swear-in Agboola as abuse of power and disregard for rule of law, calling on leader of the NGF, Governor Kayode Fayemi, to intervene in the imbroglio.
“We call on INEC, security agencies, local and international NGOs to call out the governor of Kwara state and the House of Assembly to urgently retract their undemocratic stand and steps by quickly admitting and allowing democracy and justice to thrive in this instance. A word, they say, is enough for the wise”, he said.
