April 27, 2015 – Coordinator South-west Progressive Youth Movement (SPYM), Mr. Taiwo Ajayi has condemned the impeachment of Ondo State Deputy governor, Alhaji Ali Olanusi this morning.
Ajayi who was speaking at a press briefing in Lagos described the impeachment as vindictive on the part of the State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko.
“We want to say here that we are condemning this act; if the Deputy Governor is to be impeached for his defection to another political party of choice, then each member of the Ondo State House of Assembly must be impeached too for their defection from Labour Party to People’s Democratic Party (PDP) alongside the Ondo State Governor who also defected to the PDP even without any internal crisis,” according to the Southwest Youth group.
Ajayi commended Nigeria’s President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan for institutionalizing a new democratic setting in country “which in turn gave the youth a hope of a better tomorrow.”
The SPYM lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under the leadership of Professor Attahiru Jega.
“It is no gainsaying, Professor Attahiru Jega has written his name in the sand of time,” the group stressed.
