Group Warns Gov Soludo To Stop Aides From Attacking LP Lawmaker

By John Okafor, Awka 

A political and pressure group, Anambra Progressive and Good Governance Association has tasked the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) led government under  the state Governor  Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, to call his aides to order over persistent attacks on Prof. Lilian Orogbu, the Labour Party House of Representatives lawmaker. 

The group in a statement signed by its president, Ifeanyi Nweke, said some of Soludo’s aides have been attacking Orogbu, who represents Awka North/ South in the House of Representatives, for daring to condemn the destruction of traders’ wares in Awka the state capital recently.

Members of the body said the attacks have caused distractions for the lawmaker and may affect her in the discharge of her legislative functions in the lower chambers of the National Assembly.

They said,  “We have observed the coordinated media attacks by APGA members against the ebullient professor, representing Awka North and South Federal Constituency, Prof. Lilian Orogbu."

According to him, “Ordinarily, we would not have joined issues with the warring parties, but as an independent body, we have verified most of the allegations against her and find them to be false."

The group noted that, “She is being attacked because she spoke against the street hawkers whose goods the APGA-led government destroyed in her constituency, Awka."

They said that, "This coordinated media attack on Prof. Orogbu is simply the antics of the Prof. Soludo-led government to gag and silence the voice of the opposition parties in Anambra State."

“We advise Prof. Soludo to restrain his media aides from attacking members of the opposition parties; rather, he should collaborate with them to develop Anambra; after all, the final beneficiaries are all Ndi-Anambra,” they added.
