The state spokesman of the party, Chris Osa Nehikhare, made this known through a press statement.
Some News media had reported that Orbihwas suspended today after a vote of ‘no confidence’ was passed on him, adding that the former chairman of PDP in Edo State was suspended for anti-party activities by the Edo North Senatorial Leadership of the party.
In its reaction, the state chapter of the party described the information as an “unacceptable and regrettable behavior.”
The statement added that the authors of such information are Trouble brewers sponsored by fifth columnists in what can only be described as a joke taken too far.
Part of the statement reads that “the unauthorized, illegal, unconstitutional and irresponsible sharing of social media post announcing suspensions of party officials is hereby condemned and denounced.
“Consequently, Nigerians, Edo people and especially PDP members and supporters are adviced to ignore the post, press release or communique purporting that the National Vice Chairman, Chief Dan Osi Orbih and other elected officials of the party from Edo North Senatorial district have been suspended.
“Edo PDP is a peaceful, united and vibrant political party where dialogue is our watchword. We encourage political engagements and contestations which must be guided by the tenets of our constitution. We however frown at political indiscipline that brings disrepute to our brand.”
The statement further read that PDP, as a political party, will continue to “live and operate by example.”
The party called on evenryone to “bide by the rule of law and always be conscious of the message they send to the general public at all times.
