The ward 5 executives of the Peoples Democratic Party in Enugu South Local government have dissociated themselves from what they described as “kangaroo suspension” masterminded by the ward’s chairman against the Deputy Chairman, Enugu South Local government Hon. Sandra Onyia, Ward 5 Councilor, Hon. Barr. Obinna Ani and Mr. Sunday Ugwu on 22nd February 2021.
In a disclaimer written by the leadership of the party in the ward which was signed by nine executives and made available to Daily Star Online News Enugu, they clearly stated that they never had any meeting targeted at suspending anyone.
They maintained that they did not signed any suspension document as peddled by the chairman, but only signed attendance list.
“It came to us a surprise and utter dismay that the ward Chairman and Secretary who Masterminded the suspension, passed round attendance list with the nefarious aim of using such attendance as the list of petitioners to the alleged suspension which we were privy to”.
“It is on this note that we dissociate ourselves from the purported Suspension. We reaffirm our support for our great party, PDP and we unanimously pass a vote of confidence on our working Deputy Chairman, Hon. Sandra Onyia, the performing councilor Hon. Barr. Obinna Ani and Mr. Sunday Ugwu”
“We remain one indivisible entity to achieve great strides and steer the ship of our great party in Ward 5 to a greater heights”
It was a political conspiracy and a calculated attempt by few who felt threatened by the presence of some sakeholders to silence them. those who contrived, connived and birthed the current trouble are now tired and frustrated with many already gone out of the party and others still hanging onto the party as a shield.
For other members of the ward who preferred anonymity, “the chairman of our Ward and his co-plotters represent hardship and oppression, heightening crisis and re-enacting Political chauvinism”
According to the Party leadership, they can not look the other way and allow some people who see themselves as lords decide for the party without giving the generality of Ndi ward 5 in Enugu South the opportunity to air their views as democracy predisposes”.
