An alleged plot to remove the remaining traces of Governor Rotimi Amaechi in Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, commenced yesterday with the evaluation of all party members from the state in public office by the Felix Obuah-led state executive of the party.
The screening is to scrutinise all those in public office on the platform of the party, including the deputy governor, federal and state legislators, local government chairmen and councilors, among others.

As the screening commenced yesterday, the head of the evaluation committee, Osinakachukwu Ideozu, warned that attendance was compulsory for every political office holder as he warned that absence would be met with strict sanctions by the state executive.

However, loyalists of the governor alleged that the screening was a final plot to ensure that Amaechi’s loyalists were screened out of the forthcoming special national convention of the party due next weekend.
An associate of Amaechi said: “They know that no government official will attend the screening, so that will be the excuse to suspend senators, members of the House of Representatives, state House of Assembly and council chairmen from the party and ensure that they are screened out of next week’s convention.”
Governor Amaechi, who was suspended from the party last May, and 27 of the 32 members of the House of Assembly loyal to him, who were suspended shortly after, have not been invited for the screening.
At press time yesterday, of all the invitees, only the erstwhile Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus appeared before the committee.
As he left, Secondus expressed appreciation to the Obuah executive for the initiative, saying it was bound to take the party on the right course.
Briefing newsmen on the exercise yesterday, Ideozu said: “The reason for excluding these persons is simple. The Governor and 27 house members are suspended and so can’t be invited.
