The Anambra Progressive and Good Governance Association has called on the Anambra State governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, to restrain his aides from attacking Prof. Lilian Orogbu, the federal lawmaker from the Labour Party.

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

The group 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.

Part of the statement reads: “We have observed the coordinated media attacks by APGA members against the ebullient professor, representing Awka North and South Federal Constituency, Prof. Lilian Orogbu.

“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.

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

“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.”
