Imo PDP Brouhaha; Ihedioha’s Loss Tears Party Apart

The leadership of Imo State the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  has expelled Senator Ifeanyi Ararume for alleged gross misconduct and anti- party activities.

The expulsion of the former senator, who lost the gubernatorial ticket to Hon.Emeka Ihedioha,  from the party may not be unconnected with his  backing of Governor Rochas Okorocha during the gubernatorial polls against the PDP candidate.

Also expelled from the party for the same reasons include: Chief Jerry Chukwueke , Chief Humphrey Anumudu, Chief Bethel Nzimako,Gibson Achonwa, C. Y Amako,  Charles Amadi, Kingsley Onunuju, Ethelbert Okere,  Jones Uzoka,  Nkem Nwankwo, Independence Ogunewe, Prof  Nnamdi Obiaraeri, Celestine Uwakwe,  JCN Harcourt, Sunny Heart Ibe,  Azubuike Ekwegh,  Jeph Ojinaka, J. I. J. Njoku and Stan Nzekwe.


A statement  issued  after an executive committee meeting, yesterday and signed by leadership of the party and made available to the Daily Sun alleged that the activities of the expelled members of the party has become inimical  to the progress of the party in the state .

The statement further said that the affected persons were  guilty of gross misconduct bordering on anti- party activities especially in the just-concluded general elections where they openly supported the candidate of a rival party in the gubernatorial elections. Immediately the party lost the presidential election, senator  Ifeanyi Ararume, Chief Jerry Chukwueke, Humphrey Anumudu, Bethel Nzimako  and  their  supporters immediately dumped the PDP for the APC.

However, when contacted  on the development, the media aide  to Senator Ararume , Dr. James Okoroma,  said that PDP have embarked on another wild  goose chase.

Okoroma said the  PDP at all levels in Imo State comprised  of one set of Nigerians that can never change from doing evil, adding that Senator Araraume taught them a lesson in Imo.

He said PDP can never recover from the trauma arising from the  defeat in the last governorship election in the state, wondering “how can they expel people who have left them”.
