PDP sacks errant Rivers State leaders

03 June 2014, 08:38

Lagos - The ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has officially announced the expulsion of two top members of the party, Godspower Ake and Adokiye Oruwari, over alleged "anti party" activities.

The State Secretary of the party, Ibibia Walter Pelebo, said the duo was expelled  following the recommendations of the State Disciplinary Committee.
He said Ake and Oruwari were found guilty of individually and collectively engaging in conduct that revealed their complete disloyalty to the party, as they have consistently aligned with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to undermine the PDP in Rivers State.
"Their expulsion serves as a deterrent to others who have found it convenient to engage in acts that contravene the provisions of the constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party 2012 (as amended) and are against the peaceful, lawful and efficient conduct of the business of the party in Rivers State. The party will henceforth not deal with disloyalty and anti party activities with kid gloves," he said.
He commended the state executive committee of the party for being prompt in addressing issues of grave importance brought before it, even as he said that the party welcomed all lovers of progress in Rivers State into its fold.
