The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended its National Vice Chairman (South South), Chief Dan Orbih, due to his alleged actions and statements regarding the party’s Edo State governorship primary election.


This announcement was made in a statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja on Wednesday.


Ologunagba stated that the National Working Committee (NWC), during its 588th meeting on Wednesday, July 10, reviewed several issues, including complaints about Orbih’s activities related to the September 21 election.


He noted that the NWC unanimously condemned Orbih’s actions and remarks concerning the Edo State Governorship Primary Election, describing them as inconsistent with the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017) and the responsibilities of his national office.


“Consequently, the NWC has established a six-member committee led by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, to investigate the matter in accordance with the party’s Constitution. Meanwhile, the NWC has suspended Chief Dan Orbih from participating in all NWC meetings, activities, and programs pending the committee’s investigation,” Ologunagba said.


He further acknowledged the support and solidarity of the majority of Edo residents who have rallied around the PDP and its candidate, Dr. Asue Ighodalo.


Ologunagba urged all PDP leaders, stakeholders, and members in Edo to remain united, focused, and to continue working diligently for the party’s success in the upcoming election.
