Another PDP Chairman Consumed in Party Crisis

Must read

Kingsley Ugbe

Chairman of the People’s Democratic party in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State, Emeka Alihe, has been suspended.

This is coming, barely 24 hours after the Chairman of Ikeduru Local Government Area of the State.

Rising from an emergency meeting of the Party, held in Egbema, in Egbema Local Government Area of the State, two-thirds of the members of the Local Government Executive Committee passed a resolution, suspending the Chairman of the Local Government Area, over allegations of constitutional violation and financial impropriety.

A Letter, addressed to the Imo State Chairman of the Party, dated November 17, reads in part: “consequent upon the refusal of the LGA Chairman to convene the executive committee meeting of the Party, as provided by the party’s Constitution, for the last six months, despite demands to that effect.”

“Whereas he has failed to account for the sum of Five Million Naira (N5m), being party funds.”

“Whereas the undersigned 2/3rd members of the LGA officers and Ward chairmen met today 17th November 2022 and resolved as follows:

“That we hereby pass a vote of absolute no confidence on Mr. Emeka Alihe”

“That by a vote of 2/3rd majority, he is hereby removed as the LGA Chairman of Ohaji/Egbema LGA.”

“That the Vice Chairman is hereby appointed as the acting Chairman, pending the election of a new Chairman.”

It would be recalled that the Ikeduru Local Government Chairman of the Party, Geoffrey Ihentuge and the Vice Chairman, Godson Okereke were yesterday, suspended from office.

Sources tols Atlantic Reporters that many other LGA chairmen of the party may also be removed, in like manner.

This may not be unconnected with the rivalry between the National Secretary of the Party, Senator Samuel Anyanwu and former Governor Emeka Ihedioha.
