PDP expels Ararume, 19 others for alleged anti-party activities in Imo




FOR their alleged anti-party roles before, during and after the just-concluded general elections, the State Executive Committee (SEC) of Imo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expelled a hitherto governorship aspirant of the party in the December 2014 primaries, and a two-time senator in the past, Chief Ifeanyi Godwin Ararume and 19 others.

In a statement issued at the weekend in Owerri and signed by the state chairman of the party, Chief Nnamdi Anyaehie and 12 others, which was made available to journalists, the SEC of the party also named others expelled as Jerry Chukwueke, Humphrey Anumudu, Gibson A. Njemanze (Oyiga), C. Y. Amako, Azubuike Ekwegh, J.I.J Njoku and Stan Nzekwe.

Others are Kingsley Ononuju, Ethelbert Okere, Jones Uzoka, Nkem Nwankwo, Independence Ogunewe, Prof. Nnamdi Obiaraeri, Bethel Zimako, a Lawyer, Ogbuagu Celestine Uwakwe, Dr. J. C. N. Harcourt, Sunny Heart Ibe and Jephy Ojinika.

According to the statement, the decision to expel them from the party was taken at a meeting of the SEC held on May 4, 2015, adding: “After a full and exhaustive deliberation on the reports of the activities of the underlisted persons against the interest of our great party in the just-concluded general elections whose actions openly evidenced gross anti-party activities, the state executive committee at its meeting of Monday, May 24, 2015 accepts the report and recommendations and accordingly expels the under-listed from the party.”

    Dear Editor,

    I write to suggest the above man as a minister. He is intelligent

    humble and incorruptible. He has worked in the aviation Industry for 42

    years. A technocrat per excellence, he was unjustly fired by outgoing president
    Goodluck Jonathan

    after the bullet proof car scam of Mrs. Stella Oduah broke out. He

    barely spent 5months out of his 5 year term confirmed by the senate.

    He has faced senate and house of Reps and was cleared because he

    hasn’t assumed office when the saga/contract was carried out. He will

    handle the aviation Industry professionally
