Update: PDP Crisis Deepens, Suspends South-South Vice Chairman, State Chairman In Edo


Chief Dan Osi Orbih, the South-South Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has been suspended from the party.

The former chairman of PDP in Edo State was suspended for anti-party activities by the Edo North Senatorial Leadership of the party after a vote of ‘no confidence’ was passed on him.

In the same vein, The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ward 4, Oredo Local Government Area, Mr. Friday Enaruna Ihama has been suspended for alleged anti-party activities.

He has been replaced by Prince Courage Uyi Ogiefa.

The State Assistant Financial Secretary, Mr. Aroko Thomas, said the suspended chairman of the ward, Mr. Friday Enaruna Ihama, allegedly engaged in anti-party activities during and after the September 19 governorship election in 2020.

He said Mr. Ihama had since deployed different tactics to halt the progress of the party in the ward.

Mr. Thomas said the suspended chairman has been involved in a financial deal with the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last governorship election to the tune of N2.5 million.

“He has been frustrating the progress of the party in Ward 4. He has been frustrating the e-registration exercise of the party in the ward and failing to provide information about the process of e-registration. He also refused to register any new member in the ward despite the drive for membership,” he noted.

Mr. Thomas said for close to one year, the suspended chairman has failed to call for a meeting of members from the ward, which is a deliberate effort to destroy the PDP in the Governor’s ward.
