A democracy inclined civil society group-Human Rights Writers' Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has condemned the allegedly orchestrated attack by some politicians belonging to the South West Zone of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) targeted at the person of the minority leader of the Federal House of Representatives Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila.
Femi Gbajabiamila of the Action Congress of Nigeria who represents Surulere Federal Constituency of Lagos State at the Federal House of Representatives has come under persistent sponsored attacks by a section of the Peoples' Democratic Party leadership following his motion recently in the lower legislative Chamber which warned President Good luck Jonathan of possible impeachment by September 2012 should the 2012 budget fail to be implemented to appreciable percentage.
But the South West Zonal leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reportedly demanded the resignation of Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila following alleged professional indictment slammed on him but later lifted while he was practicing law in the United States of America following alleged professional misconduct.
In a statement by the National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National media Affairs Director, Miss. Zainab Yusuf, (HURIWA) said the timing of the publication of the so-called professional indictment of Honourable Gbajabiamila of the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria by some sympathizers of the Presidency amounted to 'political blackmail' and an attempt to intimidate members of the political opposition platforms from exercising their constitutionally guaranteed freedom of expression, and speech.
