No substance in claim on suspending Sen. Egwu, others - PDP


By Kelechi Nwoba

The Peoples Democractic Party, PDP, has dismissed the publications alleging that some of the strong party faithfuls including Senator Sam Ominyi Egwu and twenty three (23) others in Ebonyi State were suspended from the party.

This was contained in a statement issued and made available to newsmen by Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary on Tuesday.

Kola in the statement said, the party has urged "Nigerians to disregard the purported suspension of 24 of our leaders in Ebonyi, as there is no substance in the claim."

He maintained that no PDP leader from Ebonyi was suspended and described the document purporting the suspension as fictitious.

 He also said the document did not emanate from Ebonyi State Chapter of the PDP as suggested.

"For the avoidance of doubt the PDP does not have a state working committee in Ebonyi State as presented by the said fictitious document. As such, any such body said to have met to arrive at any decision or any action claimed to have been taken by such non-existent body is at best imaginary.    

"The public is already aware that the body vested with the task of piloting the affairs of our party in Ebonyi State is the State Caretaker Committee, which has since assumed its mandate to the approval and delight of the leaders and members of our party in Ebonyi state since the dissolution of our state executive in the state.

"Moreover, a check at the records of our party in Ebonyi affirms that no such meeting as purported in the said document was held to take any such decision at any time," the statement read.

The Publicity Secretary said that the PDP leaders have been aware that the publications emanated fromSiganed:

National Publicity Secretary the alleged immediate past Chairman osawfaa the party in the state, Barr. Onyekachi  Nwebonyi and expressed worry over aaa lingering crisis it is degenerating. 

"It is indeed pitiable that such individual will descend to the level of resorting to fabrications and calendar-doctoring in desperation for political redemption.    

"We counsel anyone behind such a publication to steer clear of our party and face the challenges already confronting him in his new political family as well as the queries coming from the people of Ebonyi state who have been betrayed by his action," the statement added.

The PDP spokesman assured that the party structure in Ebonyi State is intact and becoming stronger, more united and enjoying greater supports of the people of the state.
