Edo PDP Chairman Suspended

…A three-member committee set up to investigate allegations

…Deputy State Chairman Hon. Harrison Omagbon now acting Chairman

At a State Working Committee meeting that held at the state party secretariat on Tuesday, 1 June 2021, two thirds majority of members resolved in a motion that the state chairman Dr Tony Aziegbemi should step aside and therefore suspended from his position and Hon. Harrison Omagbon, the State Deputy Chairman, will act in his place until the determination of the allegations levied against him.

An 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).

Amongst the allegations, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi was accused of gross misconduct by brewing unnecessary tension and disunity among party members in the state in a manner akin to bring the party into disrepute.

This decision hard as it is is designed to bring sanity back to our party.
It would be like ignoring the elephant in the room if we ignore this macabre dance 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.

We are a very disciplined party and pride ourselves as organized 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.

PDP…listening to the cries of Edo people!

Signed
