Edo guber: PDP expels Ogbeide-Ihama for alleged anti-party activities

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Oredo Local Government Area said it has expelled Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, the immediate past member of the Federal House of Representatives, for alleged anti-party activities.

Ogbeide-Ihama represented the Oredo Federal Constituency in the National Assembly between 2015 and 2023.

Waploaded recalls that he, along with former deputy governor of the state Philip Shaibu, had last week donated their governorship campaign secretariats and facilities to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Lawrence Aguebor, PDP Ward 2 chairman in Oredo Local Government, announced the expulsion of the former lawmaker from the party on Tuesday in Benin City.

Aguebor said the decision to expel Ogbeide-Ihama was taken at an enlarged meeting by the ward members and executives, held at Airport Road in Benin City.

The ward chairman, who read the resolutions of the meeting, said the expulsion followed his suspension by the ward executives and critical stakeholders of the ward who met on May 3, 2024.

He said the ward had earlier suspended him for 30 days, after which a disciplinary committee was set up.

According to him, the committee wrote him letters, called him on the phone and sat down five times but Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama failed to appear before it.

“Today, we have received the report and recommendations of the committee and the committee has recommended the expulsion of Hon. Ogbeide-Ihama Omoregie from PDP.

“The offences of Hon. Ihama for which he now stands expelled are captured under section 58 (1) a, b, d, e, f, h, l, j, and l. With the expulsion of Hon. Ogbiede-Ihama Omoregie, members of the general public are to desist from doing any business that has to do with the PDP with him,” he said.

He added that the ward members also put his expulsion to a voice vote, with all members backing his expulsion from the party.

The Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Political Matters (Oredo), Victor Enoghama, said the suspension and expulsion were long overdue.
