Godfrey Ehizokhale Ehimhen the state Chairman of the party and the secretary, Aifuobhokhan Emmanuel, in a joint statement warned its members across the state to desist from “political prostitution” or face sanction.
The statement added that Okolie and the party’s Organizing Secretary, Chief Chidi Eze, alongside their supporters have since been expelled from the party due to their involvement in anti-party activities and “are no longer members of the party.”
Meanwhile, hundreds of All Progressives Congress (APC) and the United Progressives Party (UPP) members in Edo state have defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). This is coming less than two weeks to Edo state governorship election scheduled for September 28.
