PDP Quashes Purported Suspension Of Dan Orbih
October 09, (NaijaOnPoint Media) – The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples DemocraticParty (PDP) has quashed the purported suspension of the party’s national vice chairman, South-South, Chief Dan Orbih, by the Edo North senatorial leadership of the party.
The party in a statement issued on Friday by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it noted with serious concerns the pronouncements of certain members in the Edo state chapter of the PDP.
It said, while the national leadership noted the issues and complaints raised by some stakeholders in Edo state, it, however, enjoins the chapter to be guided by the provisions of the party`s constitution regarding the imposition of sanctions on party officers at any level, stressing that the rules were clear and must be adhered to.
“Consequently, the purported suspension of Orbih, a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of our party, by the Edo North Senatorial leadership of the party is statutorily beyond its powers and to that effect a nullity.
“The NWC, however, assures (all) that it is taking strong steps to ensure amicable resolution of all issues and ensure that the interests of all members in the chapter are protected,” the statement added.
The NWC urged all members in Edo state to remain united and focused, especially at a time Nigerians are looking up to the party for direction ahead of the 2023 general elections.
