Odebala fingered for fueling Delta PDP division

14 April 2016, 17:19

Abuja - The problems afflicting the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the Delta State have taken a new twist with Sapele Region Chairman Chairman, David Oghenekevwe, blaming Sapele Local Government Council Chairman, Ejaife Odebala, of sowing divisions.

He and alleged associates have been accused of a smear campaign against House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya.

“Odebala is clearly in the picture of all meetings and consultations in preparation for the upcoming congresses,” said Oghenekevwe.

“Because of his sinister motive, he has most times dishonoured invitations extended to him and where he manages to attend such meetings, it is to insult the leadership of the party and to conspire with blind, egocentric and embattled individuals whose known antecedence is coming and going out of the party.”

Oghenekevwe frowned at defectors who he accused of destroying the party.

The party chairman also called for decisive action against those with conflicting affinities and divided loyalties.

“Odebala and his associates are always blowing their ego beyond their actual relevance, rushing to the state capital to shop for sympathy and attention while abandoning constituted channels of resolving their issues if any in Sapele,” Oghenekevwe said.

Comment could not be obtained from Odebala.

Fresh protest of alleged leadership imposition on Tuesday unsettled the PDP’s Delta State.

Members of the party from Sapele, led by Odebala, stormed the party’s secretariat in Asaba.
