PDP NWC Suspends Dan Orbih, Bars Him From Party Meetings, Activities

July 11, (THEWILL) – The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has suspended Chief Dan Orbih, the Party’s National Vice Chairman (South South).

Chief Orbih was also barred from all meetings and activities of the party pending the conclusion of an investigation by a six-member committee headed by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Amb. Taofeek Arapaja.

Orbih’s suspension followed complaints of alleged anti-party activities raised against him. THEWILL earlier reported that the Edo State PDP Youth League (EPYL) had called on the national leadership of the party to summon him over alleged ‘party misconduct’.

A statement by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, on Wednesday, said: “The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at its 588th meeting today, Wednesday, July 10, 2024, considered all issues, including complaints on the activities of the National Vice Chairman (South-South), Chief Dan Orbih, concerning the September 21, 2024, governorship election in Edo State.

“The NWC, at the meeting, unanimously condemned the embarrassing actions and utterances of Chief Dan Orbih relating to the Edo State Governorship Primary Election of our great Party, which actions and utterances are inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP (as amended in 2017) and the demand of his office as a national officer of the Party.

“Consequently, the NWC has set up a six-member committee headed by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Amb. Taofeek Arapaja, to investigate the issue under the provisions of the Constitution of the Party.

“In the meantime, the NWC forthwith suspends Chief Dan Orbih from participating in all meetings, activities, and programmes of the NWC pending the conclusion of an investigation by the Committee.

“The NWC acknowledges the support and solidarity of the overwhelming majority of the people of Edo State who are rallying with our Party and Candidate, Dr. Asue Ighodalo, whose vision is in tandem with the will and aspiration of the people for continued massive development of the State on the platform of the PDP.

“The NWC charges all leaders, critical stakeholders, and teeming members of our Party in Edo State to remain united, focused and continue to work hard for the victory of our Party and Candidate in the September 21, 2024, governorship election in Edo State.”
