Edo Guber: PDP Expels Ex-lawmaker, Omoregie

Date:

FROM IKHILI EBALU, BENIN CITY 

Immediate past member representing Oredo Federal Constituency, Ogbiede Omoregie has been expelled from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for alleged anti-party activities.

Omoregie was expelled by Ward 2 in Oredo Local Government Area, following the resolution of an enlarged meeting by ward members and executives held in Benin City.

Reading the resolution, Chairman of PDP Ward 2 in Oredo, Lawrence Aguebor said the expulsion followed the suspension of the former lawmaker by the executives and critical stakeholders during a meeting on May 3, for 30 days after which a disciplinary committee was set up.

He said the committee wrote Omoregie and called him on the phone but he failed to appear before them.

“Today, we have received the report and recommendations of the committee and it has recommended his expulsion from the PDP. 

“The offenses for which he now stands expelled are captured under Section 58 (1) a, b, d, e, f, h, l, j, l. With his expulsion, members of the general public are to cease and desist from doing any business that has to do with the PDP with him,” Aguebor read.

On his part, Special Adviser to the governor on Political Matters (Oredo), Victor Enoghama said the suspension and expulsion was long overdue.

According to him, “Omoregie has donated his building at Ring Road by Sakponba Road to the All Progressives Congress, APC, to be used as campaign office for the September 21 governorship election. 

“His suspension is long overdue. Let him join the APC as we cannot allow him to be in the PDP and fraternise with APC.

Enoghama also called on the ward of the former deputy governor to follow suit and expel Comrade Philip Shaibu from the PDP, also for anti-party activities.
