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.
