BREAKING; PDP Chairman reportedly suspended
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, [PDP], in Edo State, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi has been suspended from his position.
PDP in a press statement on Wednesday morning by the Party’s Publicity Secretary, Chris Osa Nehikhare said it was a resolution reached by the State Working Committee during a meeting when he was accused of gross misconduct by brewing unnecessary tension and disunity among party members in the state, a manner akin to bringing the party into disrepute.
According to him; Ignoring this allegation would be like ignoring the elephant in the room. This macabre dance must not be ignored as Edo people have watched in utter amazement and disappointment how Dr Tony Aziegbemi has been roped and entangled by his actions and unfortunately too, his inactions in the management of the affairs of the party.
“As a disciplined party, we pride ourselves as organised and focused on service delivery to our teeming supporters and of course Edo people.
“We urge our members and supporters to please remain calm as we embark on this self-cleansing exercise.
“His Deputy, Harrison Omagbon, has been directed to step in acting capacity pending when the allegation levelled against Dr. Aziegbemi would be investigated and resolved.
“Three members Investigative Committee is hereby set up, headed by the State Legal Adviser, Barr. Arthur Esene, and is mandated to report back to the Working Committee within one week. Other members of the Committee are Mrs. Linsdale Tes Sorae (State Woman Leader) and Dr. Wilson Imongan (State Auditor).
