Awka - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State has urged Gov. Willie Obiano to resign his position as governor of the state, reports Sun.
The party’s position follows Obiano’s alleged inability to give a clear account of the N75 billion his predecessor, Peter Obi, handed over to him.
The governor was also accused of several unconstitutional breaches including a plot to set up caretaker committees for local council areas in the state instead of conducting elections.

The party is also demanding the resignation of the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rita Maduagwu for the alleged failure of the Assembly to do its duties regarding the unaccounted N75 billion.
State chairman of the party, Ken Emeakayi, who spoke on behalf of the party, insisted that Gov Obiano must resign immediately in the interest of the state and the rule of law.
Emeakayi said Governor Obiano had breached Section 7 of the 1999 constitution by not putting in place a motion for the conduct of local government elections in the state as stipulated by law.
He vowed that the party would resist any attempt to appoint fresh caretaker committees for local governments in the state or renew the tenure of those already occupying council seats in the state.
