- PDP has dismissed the purported suspension of Egwu in Ebonyi
- According to the party, no member of the party has been suspended
- In fact, PDP says the document purporting the suspension is fictitious
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied that former governor of Ebonyi, Senator Sam Egwu and 23 other leaders were suspended from the party in the state.
This was disclosed in a statement by the party's publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
He said the document purporting the suspension is fictitious and did not emanate from the Ebonyi state chapter of the party.
The party says it does not have a state working committee in the state as presented by the "said fictitious document".
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Obinna Oriaku, the immediate past commissioner of finance in Abia state, has resigned his membership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Oriaku made his decision known a letter he submitted to the PDP chairman in his ward, Mbutu Ukwu Ward 3, Isiala Ngwa South, Owerrinta.
Legit.ng noted that Oriaku also posted the letter on his Facebook page.
The former PDP chieftain, however, said that he is yet to decide his next political moves.
In another development, Yahaya Bello, the governor of Kogi state has also said that more PDP governors were making plans to join the ruling APC ahead of the 2023 general elections.
He said the defection of Governor Umahi to the APC has sent a crucial message to all political actors in the southeast that the party may find it difficult to win the region during the next election.
The Kogi state governor added that the Rivers state governor, Wike, would be the last governor to join the ruling party.
