Ebonyi PDP Chairman: Dissolution of State Executive Ridiculous
Nwolu Obiajulu

Onyekachi Nwebonyi, chairman of the Ebonyi State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), state executive recently dissolved by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has described the dissolution as laughable.

Nwebonyi disclosed this in a statement in Abakaliki on Wednesday.

He said the dissolution is unconstitutional and illegal, adding that the party’s state executive committee will head to court to challenge the decision.

“It is laughable to think that the NWC would just get up and dissolve a state executive committee because the governor or a few individuals want to leave the party,” he said.

According to Nwebonyi, the state executives made concerted efforts to dissuade Governor Umahi from leaving the PDP to the All Progressive Congress (APC).

He said the state executives released a statement where they called on the national leadership of the party to zone the presidential ticket for the 2023 election to the South-East.

He noted that instead of addressing the issues raise, the NWC focused its attention on the governor’s planned defection to the APC.

He said, “It is evident that some overlords in the party are clandestinely scheming to the table in contravention of the party’s tradition of zoning to serve their personal interests.”

“In a situation where the concern has been relinquished to inordinate quest for power, things would go awry.

“It is no easy situation where the party will be losing a prominent stakeholder like a sitting governor. Governor Umahi, without doubt, has performed above board”.
he added, “Certainly, we cannot leave a house we have built and become tenants elsewhere.”

“It therefore goes against the party’s constitution for the National Working Committee to dissolve an elected state executive because the governor defects from the party.

Meanwhile, Governor David Umahi has dissolved the state elders council.

The dissolution was announced in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information, Uchenna Orji.

The Governor announced the appointment of Engr. Ben Okah to immediately take over the Chairmanship of the Elders’ Council in acting capacity.

The elders council which is made up of top leaders of the PDP in the state is led by a former Minister of Culture and Tourism, Frank Ogbuewu, whose wife, Rebecca, allegedly resigned her appointment a few days ago over the issues.
