Edo PDP Acting Chairman seeks unity, backs Obaseki



Acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State, Harrison Omagbon, has declared that his mandate is to unite the party, which is currently enmeshed in a leadership crisis.

The substantive chairman, Tony Aziegbemi, was suspended over alleged misconduct, which was said to have caused disaffection in the party.


In a statement issued yesterday by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare, shortly after the Expanded Working Committee (EWC) meeting, Omagbon stressed the need for cooperation among members of the party, while canvassing total commitment, loyalty and oneness.

“My task as Acting Chairman is to unite the party. There must be cooperation and collaboration among all members. We also need total commitment, loyalty and oneness in the party,” the statement reads.

Omagbon briefed the meeting on current development in the party and assured that the decisions reached and actions taken so far were in the best interest of the party.

He said the group commended Obaseki for the appointment template he unveiled at the weekend and moved for a vote of confidence in the governor for what he described as his “exemplary leadership and commitment to building not only a strong and united party but a state that would be the envy of all.”
