PDP expels Ake, Oruwari


The Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State has said following the recommendation of its State Disciplinary Committee, Chief Godspower U. Ake and Barrister Adokiye Oruwari are expelled forthwith from the party for anti-party activities.
Ake and Oruwari were allegedly found guilty of individually and collectively engaging in conduct that reveal their complete disloyalty to the party, as they have consistently aligned with the All Progressives Congress to undermine it.
A statement on Monday, signed by the state Secretary of the party, Chief Ibibia O. Walter Pelebo, said their expulsion would serve as a deterrent to others who find it convenient to engage in acts that contravene the provisions of the constitution of the party.
Pelebo said such people who are against the peaceful, lawful and efficient conduct of the business of the party in Rivers State should expect such treatment as meted out to Ake and Oruwari.
The statement added: “The party will henceforth not deal with disloyalty and anti-party activities with kid gloves.
“The State Executive Committee of the party also uses this medium to commend the State Disciplinary Committee for being prompt in addressing issues of grave importance brought before it, even as the party welcomes all lovers of progress in Rivers State into its fold.”
