The State Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State has suspended its Chairman, Tochukwu Okorie, over alleged gross misconduct.



The party’s Deputy State Chairman, Emmanuel Nworie, told journalists after the committee’s emergency meeting in Abakaliki on Monday that the suspension was for a period of one month.

Nworie explained that Nworie was suspended over his failure to organise executive meetings for a period of four months since he was reinstated as chairman by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

He added, “At the emergency SWC meeting, we reviewed the activities of our chairman, Tochukwu Okorie, and his misconduct.

“The chairman has failed to organise a meeting for more than four months which is against the party’s constitution.”

The deputy chairman, the legal adviser, the publicity secretary, and the women's leader were among those at the emergency meeting.

On May 23, 2022, the Court of Appeal in Abuja ordered the reinstatement of Okorie as Ebonyi PDP’s Chairman and sacked Silas Onu, who was occupying the post.

Reacting to the development, Okorie described his alleged suspension as illegal, saying: “It is only the national leadership that can suspend me."

“I’m a member of the National Executive Council of the party and no member of the state working committee has the power to suspend me."

“On the alleged gross misconduct, I’m the chairman as directed by the court." "I have the prerogative power to access the party’s account to carry out party activities,” he said.
