Edo: We didn’t suspend any member in Oredo LG –PDP


The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oredo Local Government Area of Edo State, says the party has not suspended Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, a former House of Representatives member.

The party, on Wednesday in Benin City, said the purported suspension was false and misleading.

The PDP Chairman in the local government, Oduwa Igbinosun, told newsmen in Benin that the “local government executives’ attention has been drawn to a purported expulsion of Ogbeide-Ihama by a group”.

Igbinosun also said the National Working Committee of the party had extended the tenure of all elected executives and rectified them to act as caretaker committee members.

Also, the executives of PDP Ward 2, Oredo Local Government, said that they were not aware of the purported suspension and expulsion of the two-term House of Representatives member.

The Secretary of the Ward, Mr Jesuobo Obadigie, stated this on behalf of the executives.

“Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama remains not just a member, but a prominent and formidable leader of the party and he continues to enjoy the total support of the members in Ward 2.

“It is expected that anyone who loves the party should at this point be focused on actions that will unite the party ahead of the September governorship elections.

“This is to warn mischief makers and impostors to desist from their criminal and divisive actions that could cause harm,” he said
