PDP suspends Chairman in Ebonyi

The Ebonyi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has temporarily suspended its Chairman, Okorie Tochukwu, over alleged gross misconduct.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that this was disclosed on Monday by Emmanuel Nworie, the party’s deputy state chairman.

“At the Emergency SWC meeting today, we reviewed the activities of our chairman, Tochukwu Okorie and his misconduct,” Nworie said.

“The chairman has failed to organise a meeting for more than four months which is against the party’s constitution.

“The Deputy Chairman, the Legal Adviser, the Publicity Secretary, and the Women Leader were among those at the Emergency meeting of today.”

But reacting, Okorie described his alleged suspension as illegal, saying, “it is only the national leadership that can suspend me”.

In a piece of related news, the Ebonyi State PDP gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Odii, yesterday, said he would industrialise the state and make it the economic base of the nation if voted into office.

Odii stated this in Abakaliki, the state capital, during the unveiling of his campaign secretariat ahead of the 2023 general elections, noting that he joined the race to develop the state economically.
