Ebonyi PDP suspends chairman for alleged misconduct



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State has suspended its Chairman, Mr. Tochukwu Okorie, for alleged gross misconduct.

The party’s Deputy Chairman in the state, Emmanuel Nworie, who disclosed this to journalists at the end of the State Executive Committee’s emergency meeting on Monday in Abakaliki, said the suspension was for one month.

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