Imo PDP: State Chairman Suspended Amidst Power Struggle

by admin

In a startling turn of events, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo State has become the stage for intense political drama, marked by the suspension of the State Chairman, Engr Charles Ugwuh.

The suspension, attributed to gross misconduct, adds another layer of complexity to the already charged political situation in the party.

Efforts to reach Mr. Ugwuh for comments were unsuccessful, further shrouding the circumstances of his suspension in mystery.

In his absence, Chief Chidi Dike, the Zonal Chairman of the party, has been appointed to assume the leadership role of the party.

The State Secretary, Hon Njaba, signed the resolution of the State executive committee members, which passed a vote of no confidence against Mr. Ugwuh.

The specific details surrounding the alleged misconduct have not been publicly disclosed.

Ugwuh’s suspension occurs just weeks after the PDP suffered a crushing defeat in the gubernatorial election, where Senator Samuel Anyanwu, the party’s candidate, lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Governor Hope Uzodimma.

Imo PDP internal dynamics have been tumultuous, with a series of resignations and defections leading up to governorship election.

The State Working Committee (SWC) faced significant depletion three months before the governorship election when seven members resigned and defected to the APC.

Recent attempts to fill these vacancies sparked controversy within the party in the State.

The appointment of new members to replace those who left was met with criticism, particularly from the Party’s legal Adviser, Kissinger Ikoku, who raised concerns about the process and procedure, asserting that it deviated from the party’s constitution.

The ongoing turmoil within Imo PDP is widely seen as a manifestation of the power struggle for control within the party.

A narrative of political jockeying between Senator Samuel Anyanwu and former governor Emeka Ihedioha has emerged, adding layers of complexity to the already intricate web of politics in the party.

Anyanwu, fighting to retain his position as the party’s National Secretary, is speculated to be a significant influence behind the suspension of Mr. Ugwuh, further intensifying the internal strife within the party.
