The Imo state Chapter of People Democratic Party(PDP) has debunked a report, stating that the State Chairman of PDP, Engr Charles Ugwuh has been stopped from holding office as Chairman of the party.
In a release signed by the state Publicity Secretary of the part, Ogubundu Nwadike and made available to Weekend Watchdog, PDP stated that it is not unaware of an interlocutory injuction secured in a vacation court at Port Harcourt, Rivers State by those they described as mischief makers “which is a product of fraudulent and false information presented to the court”.
The party called on members to disregard the said order as steps are being taken to shame those behind the plot to destabilize the party.
The release reads in part,” the Party is not unaware of a purported order of the Vacation Court of the Federal High Court, Port-Harcourt, which was a product of fraudulent and false information presented to the Court by the mischief-makers that have been seeking ways to destabilize the sustainable unity and peace of Imo PDP.
“Our great Party wishes to unequivocally state here, for purpose of clarity, that Engr. Charles C. Ugwuh OON remains the State Chairman of PDP in Imo State. The Engr. Charles Ugwuh-led State Executive Committee remains the administrative authority of PDP in Imo state as authenticated by the National Working Committee (NWC) of our Party.
Therefore, the Party hereby informs her teeming members that appropriate steps have since been taken to set aside by appeal of the ruling, which was obviously delivered in error. The Party has since filed a motion for stay of execution of the interlocutory order, while actions are being expedited to get the substantive suit fully determined.
Consequently, we urge all members of the party to remain calm and go about their lawful businesses and activities as the Party will not succumb to the antics of moles, who want to tear Imo PDP apart to benefit their cronies in rival political parties.
Evidently, in spite of the slight distractions by very few aggrieved leaders of the Party, Imo PDP remains more united, stronger and more unshaken”.
