Following the decamping of Ebonyi state governor, Dave Umahi, from the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC), the National Working Committee of the PDP has announced the dissolution of the Ebonyi state executive committee and the South-East zonal caretaker committee with immediate effect.
A statement signed the party spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, shows that the National Working Committee exercised its powers as granted it by the party’s constitution.
“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP rose from a crucial meeting today (November 17, 2020) and announced the dissolution of the ward, local government and state executive committees of the Ebonyi state chapter of the party forthwith.
The NWC has also dissolved the Southeast Zonal Caretaker Committee of the party.
These decisions are pursuant to the powers conferred on the NWC by the PDP Constitution.”
