BreakingNews August 7, 2013 - PDP-USA Chairman Reacts To Deportation of Igbos by Lagos State Govt.

 [ Masterweb Reports ] – The National Chairman of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) - United States Chapter, Hon.  Dr. Harold Molokwu has refuted recent media reports which claim Federal Government of Nigeria deported its citizens from Lagos, Nigeria to Onitsha  in Anambra State, Nigeria. Molokwu says the Federal Government of Nigeria was not involved in the unconstitutional and unlawful act, but the culprit - Lagos State Governor Fashola of the opposition party (ACN/APC).

 

Dr. Molokwu dropped this hint July 29, when he led a Chapter delegation of the party on a courtesy call to Dr. Okechukwu Mbonu, Vice Chairman and Executive Director, Nigerian-American Leadership Council (NALC), 1701 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington DC., USA. In a press statement, Molokwu said the action of Lagos State government was flagrant breach of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He added that all citizens of Nigeria have right to freedom of movement as enshrined in Section 41 of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria.

 

Molokwu in his closing statement gave Lagos State Governor Fashola, his ACN/APC party and officials, including Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande, Lawal Shuaibu, Senator Chris Ngige, Governor Rochas Okorocha and associates four-week ultimatum to apologize to the 67 persons of Igbo ethnic nationality allegedly deported from Lagos to Onitsha or face the music. When asked by newsmen what he meant by “face the music”, he said it included legal action and petition to appropriate quarters - including United Nations, if the apology is not tendered.
