PDP May Jeopardise Its Interest In Ebonyi, Group Warns NWC


An Ebonyi indigenes group on Saturday warned the National Working Com­mittee (NWC) of the oppo­sition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it may jeopardise its interest in Ebonyi State if it ignores an order by a Federal High Court in Abakiliki regard­ing the conduct of its pri­mary elections in the state.

The non-profit, so­cio-cultural organisation under the aegis of Associ­ation of Ebonyi Indigenes Socio-Cultural in Diaspo­ra (AEISCID), said that its outcry was to ensure good and credible governance in the state.

In a statement made available to reporters, the group claimed that the party’s primary “was properly conducted in line with the Electoral Act (as amend­ed).”

President of the group, Ambassador Paschal Olu­chukwu, warned the na­tional leadership of the PDP against allowing itself to be led into contempt of court and manipulation by some ‘desperate politi­cians.’

Oluchukwu urged the PDP leadership to be firm, fair, just and consistent in maintaining its stand on the law, saying “any at­tempt to allow itself to be muscled will lead to the crumbling of the entire cookies of the party in Eb­onyi and is even capable of causing serious crises in our once peaceful state.

This, was as he add­ed that such move would make the party “a laugh­ing stock if it fails to put its best foot forward in the mould of a rallying force with immense capacity like Ifeanyi Odii and give capable men like him an opportunity to return the party to power in 2023.”
