The Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has disclosed the expulsion of Godfrey Dikeocha and Charles Oborgu.
This decision was disclosed by the PDP State Executive Committee (SEC); via a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary, Damian Oparah; on Tuesday, December 3.
According to the statement, the PDP disclosed it reached the decision “after a painstaking; and thorough review of the recommendations for the expulsion of Godfrey Dikeocha and Charles Oborgu.”
The party revealed that the duo was expelled; due to “gross misconducts and anti-party activities; by both their ward, Aboh Mbaise LGA, and Owerri Senatorial District.”
“Consequently upon their expulsion from the party; any person(s) or individuals dealing with them with regard to any PDP affair is doing so at his/her own risk.”
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday, December 2; expressed fears of participating in the upcoming gubernatorial elections; being planned for Edo and Ondo states in 2020.
The PDP further decried the conduct of the just concluded Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections; by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
PDP further implored INEC to ensure the entrenchment of an electoral amendment; in order to redress most of the challenges in conducting elections in the country.
Prince Uche Secondus issued this in a statement; while addressing INEC delegation who came to carry out a routine verification exercise at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja.
Secondus said, “INEC as presently constituted has integrity questions. Some of the staff have compromised their offices.
“We advise that INEC should go back to the drawing board; and consider the past elections it has conducted.”
Further, the PDP National Chairman affirmed it was time for INEC; to submit the necessary amendments to the National Assembly.
He, however, added that the conduct of the 2019 general elections set Nigeria backwards.
It was on this premise that the PDP advocated for the legalization of electronic voting; and ban on military participation in elections.
