People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Ward 13 Onitsha North Local Government Area of Anambra State has debunked the circulation of a “fake document” purportedly suspending the party’s state Acting Chairman Okey Asolo.
Chairman, Ward 13 of the party in Onitsha North Local Government Sir Ezekiel Okechukwu who was flanked by other party leaders of ward 13 in the area stated in an interview in Onitsha yesterday that the purported suspension of Asolo should be disregarded, adding that ward 13 where the Acting Chairman once served as Chairman before being elevated to the state level was solidly behind the state PDP boss.
According to the PDP Ward Chairman, “we have invited the suspected authors of the documents purportedly suspending the Acting Chairman, one Obinna Obialor and his co-author of the fake documents in circulation and they both denied authorship of the document with forged signatures”.
“The two have pledged their loyalty and support to the current Anambra state PDP led Exco. Some faceless individuals want to create crisis in the PDP both at the ward and state level which are recognized at national level after the conduct of Gov Seyi Makinde led PDP congress in the state”.
Deputy Chairman-elect of the party in Onitsha North Local government, Hon. Chigbo Onyia in an interview disclosed that the fake document in circulation which has his signature on it should be treated as a case of forgery as he never appended his signature purportedly sacking the state Party Acting Chairman as there was no crisis in the party.
“The document is fake and should be treated as a case of forgery against whoever that did it. I pledge my loyalty and support to Okey Asolo’s led PDP state Exco . Okey Asolo remains our Acting State Chairman of the party”.
